Air District Announcements for March/April 2017

The Sonora Fire Department continues to require burn permit within the City of Sonora.  Air District Burn Permits are required for any burning in which the vegetation being burned exceeds two acres on an annual basis.  Burn permits are also required for 
commercial or industrial businesses.

To determine if it is a burn day, please call 533-5598.

   Only clean and dry vegetation is allowed to be burned.  Burning non vegetation, wet vegetation, burning in a burn barrel, and burning on a no-burn day are violations of Air District rules.  Please be advised that burning wet leaves or wet pine needles is prohibited. 

If smoke from your fire is creating a nuisance to your neighbors, you are required to put the fire out.  Please consider alternatives to burning such as chipping, recycling, or composting.

For more information or to report a burn complaint, please call the Air District at 533-5693.

Please be advised that anyone burning vegetation that did not originate on the property where it was burned, without the authorization of the Air District, can incur fines of up to $1,000 per day pursuant to California Health and Safety Code Section 42402(a).
