Public Notice

Notice of Revised Rulemaking

6 NYCRR Part 215, Open Fires
6 NYCRR Part 191, Forest Fire Prevention
6 NYCRR Part 621, Uniform Procedures

Pursuant to Environmental Conservation Law, Sections 1-0101, 3-0301, 9-0105, 9-1103, 19-0103, 19-0105, 19-0301, 19-0303, 19-0305, 70-0707, 71-2103, and 71-2105, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) hereby gives notice of the following:

Based upon comments received during the comment period, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation is revising the proposal to 6 NYCRR Parts 215, 191, and 621. The primary revision allows for the on-site burning in any town with a total population less than 20,000 of downed limbs and branches (including branches with attached leaves or needles) less than six inches in diameter and eight feet in length between May 15th and the following March 15th. In addition, the proposed rule will limit agricultural burning to naturally grown products such as vines, branches, leaves and stubble. It will also specifically allow such things as fire training, small cooking and camp fires, and ceremonial fires (e.g., proper disposal of U.S. flags by open burning). Finally, the proposed rule will eliminate the need for permits to conduct open burning that is allowed by Part 215.

The Department will be accepting comments on the revised proposed rulemaking until 5:00 p.m., June 26, 2009. Written comments may be submitted to the email or mailing address listed below.
