NEWS AND EVENTS
OUTDOOR BURNING
The local Automated Burn Line is 503-681-6204. The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality regulates open burning in the Willamette Valley in accordance with Oregon Administrative Rules. DEQ has contracted with the Oregon Department of Forestry meteorology program to produce a Daily Open Burning Announcement indicating types and times of burning allowed in the Willamette Valley based on expected meteorological conditions.
All agricultural burn permits can be issued at both stations, 7 days a week. We also have backyard burning information at both stations.
