LAST REVISED 01/01/89            
            RULE 7.6  Burning Permits

            The public has been accustomed  to  obtaining burning permits 
            from the various fire protection agencies.  There are  stations  
            strategically  located in most areas,  and it would be logical 
            to designate these agencies as the  person  to issue air quality 
            permits for agricultural burning.  These agencies would also
            be in the  position to coordinate air quality control criteria 
            as well as fire protection criteria that would relate to the 
            agricultural burning.

            A.  The burning  permit  shall  be  prepared  in  sufficient 
                copies to provide information to the various agencies of 
                concern.   The permittee shall have his or her copy 
                available for inspection at the burn site.  This procedure
                will minimize any charges of burning without a valid permit.
            B.  In  order  to  provide for proper control of the 
                agricultural  burning,  a permit shall be obtained for each 
                burning operation. 
            C.  The permit shall  be  issued  for the length of time 
                necessary to complete the  burning  operation.   The 
                permittee  shall  contact  the  local  fire protection 
                agency prior to each  day's  burn  to  determine  if  it  
                is an authorized  burn  day,  as  well as informing them 
                that a burn is about to take place.

            D.  The application for a burning  permit  shall  be  reviewed  
                by the issuing agency. If the burn is likely to cause a 
                nuisance, or the request  is  not consistent with 
                agricultural burning, the permit shall not be issued 
                until approval  is obtained from the Air Pollution Control 
                District.  A nuisance might be caused  if the location of 
                the burn site and the direction of the prevailing winds 
                will  direct  the  air  contaminants  toward  an adjacent
                residential area.

            E.  Each permit issued pursuant to these procedures shall bear a 
                statement  of 0warning containing the following words or 
                words of like or similar import:
                "This permit is valid only on those days during which 
                agricultural burning is  not  prohibited  by  the  California  
                Air  Resources Board pursuant to Section 41855 or the local 
                air pollution control district." 
            F.  All burning permits will be issued by the designated  fire  
                control agency having  jurisdiction  in  the  area  of the 
                proposed burn and shall  state thereon the type of material 
                to be burned, estimated tonnage or acreage of waste to be 
                burned, and the classification  of the burning under which 
                the permit was issued.  Agricultural burning permits may 
                only be issued by the following designated agencies: U. S. 
                Forest Service; California Department of  Forestry and 
                Fire Protection; Siskiyou County  Air  Pollution  Control 
            G.  During  any  period when permits are not being issued by 
                a fire protection agency, they shall be obtained from the
