Burn Ban for all of San Juan County

As of today, August 31, 2017, there is a county-wide burn ban being enacted. This means no outdoor burning of recreational campfires or outdoor burning of wood in fire bowls or patio fire places.

Charcoal and propane barbeques continue to be allowed outside of parks and campgrounds. Please use extreme caution with outdoor cooking and keep a charged hose nearby or a bucket of water if possible.  

This burn ban coincides with the closing of all burning in state parks in San Juan county as well as an expected period of hot weather with temperatures increasing over the course of the Labor Day weekend
