Burn ban lifted for Snohomish, Pierce counties

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

Light winds forecasted for Wednesday and Thursday, Dec. 8, are expected to reduce air pollution in the Puget Sound region, which built up in the past week. Agency forecasters will continue to monitor weather conditions and air quality. If air pollution levels rise again later in the week, another burn ban may be necessary.

Clean Air appreciates the public's cooperation with the burn ban, and encourages people to always check current air quality and burn ban status before they burn. Conditions can change quickly this time of year. Visit their website at or call their burn ban info-line at 800-595-4341 for more information.
