FARMINGTON, Utah — All open burning has been prohibited in Davis County for the remainder of 2020, according to local officials.
The order was issued around 4:15 p.m. Monday.
“This prohibition comes strongly recommended due to the impact of COVID-19 on our local and state emergency services and the poor air quality of our region,” officials said in a press release.
Some exemptions were cited.
The release stated farm and horticultural operations are allowed to burn products such as prunings, diseased plants, stubble, and irrigation ditch banks.
Farmers have been asked to notify their local fire department before burning anything, adding that the fires must be contained and monitored at all times.
Recreational fires may also burn following approval from the local fire department.
Officials said homeowners are not allowed to burn anything — including prunings, rubbish, debris, or garbage.
Residents have been advised to shred those items for mulch, or haul them to a local landfill.
Anyone with questions related to the order has been asked to contact their local fire department.
