UPR Asks: How Would a Seasonal Burning Ban Affect you?
State environmental officials are proposing a seasonal wood burning ban in seven northern Utah counties: Box Elder, Cache, Davis, Salt Lake, Utah, Tooele, and Weber. The ban could have an effect on winter air quality in our communities, so we want to know how you think the ban would affect you and if you support it.
You are encouraged to attend one of the state Air Quality Board’s public hearings and share your thoughts:
