Air Quality

What We Do

Our Air Quality Program is the local air pollution control authority that works with the CDPHE’s Air Pollution Control Division.

Our team samples our air for testing, issues open burn permits, investigate complaints and issue air watch alerts. We also have certifications for odor and opacity evaluations.

Residential open burn seasons run from March 1 – May 30 (Spring Open Burn) and from September 1 – October 31 (Fall Open Burn). Residential burn permits cannot be purchased outside of these seasons. Agricultural open burning is allowed year-round.
