OPEN BURNING IN UNINCORPORATED LAKE COUNTY
The Lake County Board enacted an emergency ordinance that temporarily bans open burning in unincorporated Lake County through June 10, 2020. During this time, open burning is prohibited in the unincorporated areas.
Recreational fires that are no larger than 3’ x 3’ x 3’ used for warming, cooking, and other recreational purposes are not included in this ban. The temporary ban is in addition to existing prohibitions which include burning garbage, refuse, or construction materials. The length of the temporary ban is subject to extension by the Lake County Board in response to developing circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.
