Do I Need a Burn Permit?
- Any non-residential burning always requires an Air Pollution Permit from the Air District. If you have any doubts about your need for a permit, call the Grass Valley Office and ask for Joe or Sam.
- If the local fire department tells you that you don’t need a burn permit, always double check with Joe or Sam at the Grass Valley office (530-274-9360).
- For residential burning, cases vary so please see the Open Burning page or call the Air District for more information (530-274-9360).
