BUTAPCD RULE 323 RANGE IMPROVEMENT BURNING
LAST REVISED 08/06/85


               The  Air  Pollution Control Officer may annually designate a
               period, or  a portion of such period, from January 1 through
               May 31, during  which  time range improvement burning may be
               conducted by permit, as  specified in Rule 303, on a no-burn
               day, provided more than fifty  (50)  percent of the land has
               been brush treated.  If the burn is perfomed  primarily  for
               the  improvement  of  land for wildlife or game habitat, the
               Department of Fish and  Game may specify the amount of brush
               treatment required.

               The  Air  Resources  Board may  prohibit  range  improvement
               burning under this Rule  if,  in  the  opinion  of the State
               Board,  such prohibition is required for the maintenance  of
               suitable air quality.
