The new Open Burning Smoke Control Regulation (OBSCR) came into effect on September 15, 2019. Therefore, the regulations governing our work to abate fuel accumulations from harvesting operations changed at the start of the 2019 burning season.
The Federation issued the following info bulletin: 2019.11.12_OBSCR _Info_to_WL
Two key pieces of information you will need to know:
- Venting index
- Smoke Sensitivity Zone where burning is planned (found on the Open Burning Smoke Control Regulation web page)
More information will be coming out as it comes available.
