Citizens are reminded that all outdoor burning is required to comply with the State Outdoor Burning Rule, Title 30, Texas Administrative Code, Sections 111.201 through 111.221 and the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (T.C.E.Q.) guidance, RG-049 dated August 2007.
Citizens are asked to contact the County Sheriff's Office at (254) 865-7201, to alert them that a controlled outdoor burn will be conducted. We are asking that outdoor burns not be started if the wind is forecast to be greater than sixteen (16) miles per hour.
T.C.E.Q. rules also state that a fire must be attended by a responsible person at all times during the active burning phase and that no burning is to begin sooner than one hour after sunrise and must be completed on the same day no later than one hour before sunset.
Citizens are urged to use extreme caution and responsible judgment.
The T.C.E.Q. publishes the following guidance document to assist in interpreting the Outdoor Burning Rule in Texas. See Services Below.
