Sacramento Valley Agricultural Burn Decision

This page last updated July 1, 2014.


This page contains information on acreage allocation for the Sacramento Valley Air Basin.
Based on weather and air quality conditions today in the Sacramento Valley, the state Air Resources Board has made a preliminary, basinwide acreage allocation for low-elevation agricultural burning. The final acreage allocation for the air basin may differ. The preliminary acreage distribution to the districts by the Basinwide Air Pollution Control Council is not the actual number of acres burned in your county, nor is it an indicator of what air quality will be like in your area.

Please keep in mind that the information on this web-page is not permission to burn!
For permission to burn, you are required to contact your local agricultural burn authority, which has information available on local conditions, including fire danger, and can respond to local burning problems.
For information on types of burning other than agricultural burning, contact your local air pollution control district.
