[ARCHIVED] Open Burn Ban to Take Effect at Lake Berryessa Recreational Sites on May 30


Due to the elevated wildland fire risks during the dry summer months, an open burn ban (2019 California Fire Code Section 307.1.1) for the Lake Berryessa Recreational Areas will take effect on Monday, May 30 at 8pm. Open flames such as charcoal grills and fire pits will be prohibited on the recreational sites managed by Napa County and the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation from that time until further notice. As an alternate, visitors to those sites may use propane-operated cooking devices and gas operated fire rings. 

For clarification the burn ban does NOT apply to Berryessa residential communities or other recreational areas in Napa County.
