Never Forgotten
Statewide Burning Ban in Effect
Email Print RSS Facebook Twitter RSS

By Chief Jeff Lowman
June 1, 2022

Effective: June 1, 2022

There is an open burning ban in effect from June 1st through August 31st each year. Open burning permits cannot be used during
this time. This ban does not apply to small recreational fires such as campfires, home fire pits, the use of barbeques, or gas grills.

The annual ban, which is required by the Maryland State Air Quality regulations, first went into
effect in June of 1995. The ban extends throughout the Metropolitan Washington Air Quality Region and
is designed to reduce the high ozone levels that affect the region during the summer months, allowing for better air quality. The ban is not related to rainfall.

Those of you on the Frederick County side of town, the FCHD would also like to remind residents that when burning is allowed, an open burning permit is required from the Health Department. Permits can be obtained by visiting the FCHD, Environmental
Health Office located at 350 Montevue Lane or by printing an application from their website and mailing it along with your check to the FCHD.

In some areas, violations of the open burning ban or open burning without a permit is subject to a fine of up to
$500 and up to $25,000 under Maryland State Regulations.
