Consider deferring outdoor burning

La Grande, OR- Although the sunny and clear days of fall are beautiful to look at, they don’t necessarily make the best days for outdoor burning. Weather conditions over the next few days are not favorable for smoke dispersal in the region. A stable air mass does not allow smoke to mix and disperse away from populated areas. This causes poor air quality and can lead to health concerns for many people.

Please consider deferring outdoor burning activities, such as slash and debris burning until weather conditions change.
