Open Burning on Reservation allowed September 24
Open burning, including cardboard and paper waste in burning barrels and yard debris, will be allowed on the Umatilla Indian Reservation beginning Saturday September 24.
Umatilla Tribal Fire Chief Rob Burnside says the cooler temperatures allow for burns to be reinstated.
Burn permit applications may be obtained at the Tribal Department of Natural Resources’ Office of Air Quality or the Tribal Fire station.
If you have questions or concerns with burns please call the Office of Air Quality at (541) 429-7421 or 7422.
