DAR File No.: 33430
Filed: 03/04/2010 07:56:48 AM


Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:

Subsection 19-2-104(1)(a) allows the Air Quality Board to make rules "...regarding the control, abatement, and prevention of air pollution from all sources...." Rule R307-202 sets forth the conditions under which burning of yard clippings is allowed, forbids burning at community waste disposal sites, and the burning of trash or garbage. Rule R307-202 does not regulate fireplaces or outdoor grills.

Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:

No comments have been received since the last five-year review.

Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:

Rule R307-202 is necessary to specify time windows when local officials may allow burning for yard cleanup, and to set forth the kinds of burning for which permits are not needed; and should be continued. In addition, Rule R307-202 is a component of Utah's State Implementation Plan, and cannot be deleted without EPA approval.
