Open Burning Information

The open burn period is currently OPEN. The burning period runs from April 1st - October 31st, and requires a valid (current year only-not expired) and approved CDPHE permit be obtained prior to open burning. Fire department notification and approval is also required for all burning activity, even if the activity is permit exempt, on the day of burning. Burning cannot be preapproved. Permit applications for 2023 can now be submitted to CDPHE for 2023.

If you would like to conduct an open burn and reside within the boundaries of BWFR, you can find information on proper burning procedures, permit application, and some general FAQ's by clicking HERE
