Pinal County to Suspend Issuance of Open Burn Permits

burnpermit

Starting 2 April, Pinal County Air Quality will begin issuing only 3-day open burning permits. All permits will expire by 1 May and Pinal County will suspend issuance of all open burning permits on 27 April.

Burn permits allow for the disposal of plant material by open burning during limited daytime hours.

Additionally, State law prohibits open burning in Area A from 1 May thru 30 September. The Pinal County portion of Area A includes Apache Junction, Queen Creek, Gold Canyon, San Tan Valley and portions of Florence.

The annual cycle of rising temperatures will quickly dry seasonal vegetation, leading to an acute wildfire risk in the desert and upland areas of the County.

The suspension on burn permits will continue until the summer monsoons arrive and mitigate the dual risks to public safety and public health.

Additional information on the Pinal County Air Quality program can be found on the County website or by calling 520-866-6929.
