       Sec 11.  REPORTING-RECORDING.  Each person who holds a valid
                agricultural burning permit shall record, (report), on the 
                date the kind of waste to be burned, the acres or tons of 
                waste to be burned, and such other information as may be 
                required by the Control Officer prior to burning.  In 
                addition to other penalties of law, the Control Officer may 
                order the cancellation of any agricultural burning permit if 
                the permittee fails to report or record as required by this 
                section.  The Control Officer may limit the duration of 
                agricultural burning permits of persons who fail to submit 
                their reports as required.  The Control Officer may also 
                require that requests for future agricultural burning
                permits be denied until such time as the reports required 
                by this section are submitted.  It is unlawful for anyone 
                to submit a false report.

                     ignited only by stripfiring into the wind or by 
                     backfiring except under a special permit of the 
                     district issued when and where extreme fire hazards 
                     are declared by a public fire protection agency to 
                     exist, or where crops are determined not to lend
                     themselves to these techniques.

                 September 10th of any calendar year shall not be burned

                 (dates inclusive), unless written authority is given by 
                 the district on a form approved by the Sacramento 
                 Basinwide Control Council.
