The Placer County Air Pollution Control District (District) is proposing the amendment of Rule 305, Residential Allowable Burning.

Rule 305, Section 103 – Exemptions, is amended to reflect greater clarity in allowing the use of burn barrels to burn dry paper or cardboard in an area exempted from the State Airborne Toxics Control Measure for outdoor residential waste burning. The Iowa Hill sub-area of Placer County is the only area currently exempted. Section 303 is amended for clarity that the District did not intend to imply the enforcement by the District of fire agency burn permits.

A public hearing to consider the adoption of the proposed amended Rule will be held on Thursday, October 11, 2018, at the regularly scheduled meeting of the Placer County Air Pollution Control District Board, beginning at 2:30 PM, at the Placer County Board of Supervisors' Chambers, 175 Fulweiler Avenue, Auburn, California. Any interested person may attend this meeting and provide comment.
