Due to extreme drought conditions and high fire danger, the state forestry has postponed the fall 2020 open burn season.
Closed until further notice.
The Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has issued rules for open burning.
Open burning is regulated by the Division of Air Quality (DAQ). There are statewide rules in place that regulate open burning activities to help minimize emissions and ensure that the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) are met. Recent modifications to these rules change the open burn periods and include a statewide requirement to obtain a permit from the local fire department prior to burning.
Applicants that live in Lehi are required to complete the open burn permit application on the DAQ web site. After the application is completed and submitted, a copy of the application will be sent electronically to the Lehi Fire Department. The Fire Department will then issue the burn permit to the applicant.
Agricultural permits will be issued incident to agricultural and horticultural operations.
Burn season begins on March 30 and ends on May 30 and in the fall beginning
September 15 thru October 30.
