Burn permit holders can only burn on “Permissive Burn Days” as determined for the North Coast area. The Burn Day status is determined for each of the three burn zones within the District (Zone 1, 2, 3) - your burn zone is indicated on your air quality burn permit.
For the daily Burn Day status, please call (866) 287-6329 (or 866- BURNDAY).
The District’s Burn Day status determination is made on the findings of CARB's Meteorological Branch, which specifies each day of the year as a Permissive Burn Day, or a No-Burn Day for each air basin or other specified area under Title 17, California Code of Regulations. Burn day decisions are driven by air quality estimates of air quality for the next day (the decisions are made the afternoon before they are effective) and by weather conditions.
