Clark - Stage 2 Burn Ban SWCAA News

Tuesday, January 01, 2019 - Effective at 2pm on January 1, 2019, the Southwest Clean Air Agency (SWCAA) is issuing a Stage 2 burn ban for Clark County. This ban is in effect until further notice.

Overnight, fine particle pollution levels reached UNHEALTHY levels. Forecaster’s expect the rest of today to be stagnant with poor mixing conditions. So, pollution levels will stay elevated, and will spike again this evening with further wood burning. Conditions are expected to improve late on Wednesday.

All outdoor burning and the use of all fireplaces, wood stoves, and inserts is prohibited in Clark County until further notice. If wood burning is your only source of heat, you are exempt from this curtailment and SWCAA asks that you burn as clean as possible.
