Burn ban lifted for Pierce County

Editor's note: the following is a press release issued by the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency.

The Puget Sound Clean Air Agency is lifting the air quality burn bans issued on November 30, 2011 for Pierce and Snohomish counties, effective at 1 p.m., December 7, 2011.

Light winds forecasted for today and tomorrow are expected to reduce air pollution in the Puget Sound region, which built up this past week. Agency forecasters will continue to monitor weather conditions and air quality. If air pollution levels rise again later this week, another burn ban may be necessary.

We appreciate the public's cooperation with the burn ban. We encourage people to always check current air quality and burn ban status before they burn. Conditions can change quickly this time of year. Visit our Web sitewww.pscleanair.org or call our burn ban InfoLine at 1-800- 595-4341.
