            RULE 7.5-1  Prohibitions: General

            A.  No  person shall knowingly set or permit agricultural burning 
                unless he or she has  a  valid  permit from the designated 
                agency in the area where the burn will take place.

            B.  Each applicant for a  permit  shall  provide  information  
                required by the designated agency for fire protection

                dirt, soil, and excess moisture.

            E.  Wherever possible, wastes shall be piled or windrowed in  
                such a manner as to burn with maximum possible heat density 
                and minimum smoke.

            F.  All  burning shall be ignited as rapidly as practicable 
                within  applicable fire control restrictions.

            G.  All wastes  shall  be  free  of  tires, tar paper, 
                construction debris, or other types of rubbish likely to 
                cause excessive smoke or obnoxious odors.

            H.  Special consideration shall be given  to  burning  
                operations  confined to narrow  inland  river  valleys  
                where  smoke containment may be restricted within the river 
                basin and greatly decrease the prevailing visibility.

            I.  All  materials to be burned shall be ignited  with  an  
                approved  ignition device.

            J.  A permit  shall not be valid for any day in which burning 
                is prohibited by the designated  fire  control  agency 
                having jurisdiction over the site of the burn for the 
                purpose of fire control or prevention.

            K.  A permit shall be valid for only  those days which 
                agricultural burning is not prohibited by the Board or the 

            L.  Open outdoor fires must be controlled  to such an extent as 
                is technically and  economically  feasible  to meet all 
                federal  and  state  air  quality standards pertaining to 
                air pollutants created by open burning operations.

            M.  Material shall not be burned unless  it  has  been  allowed 
                to dry for the following minimum time periods:

              1.  Open burning in agricultural operations
                  a. Dry cereal: 0 days
                  b. Prunings and small branches: 3 weeks
                  c. Large branches (6 inches and larger) and trees: 8 weeks

              2.  Range improvement burning
                  a. Treated brush: at least 6 months prior to the  burn if 
                     economically and technically feasible.
                  b. Unwanted trees: 3 months.
                  c. All unwanted trees over six (6) inches in diameter  
                     shall be felled and dried prior to the burn.

              3.   Forest management and wildland vegetative management 
                  a. As required by the designated agency issuing the 

            N.  The  Control  Officer  may  restrict  burning  to  selected 
                permittees  on designated  burn  days if total tonnage to be 
                ignited  would  discharge  a volume of contaminants  into  
                the  atmosphere  sufficient  to  cause State ambient air 
                quality standards to be exceeded.

            O.  Maximum  care  must  be  taken  to keep smoke from drifting 
                into populated areas.

            P.  Permittee should not burn when winds  exceed  20  miles  
                per  hour or when weather conditions are unsafe to burn.

            Q.  All fires in any agricultural burning operation shall be 
                started  only  on burn days, except as permitted under 
                Rules 7.3 and 7.5.
