Brazoria County
Brazoria County Burn Ban lifted
Press Release
Monday, June 25, 2018

The burn ban has been lifted for Brazoria County. County Judge Matt Sebesta lifted the ban effective Monday, June 25, 2018. With the recent rainfall, the average fire threshold has been below the recommended 400 KBDI for five consecutive days allowing the ban to be lifted. County officials urge residents to burn their debris with caution, as a few areas in the county remain dry.  

The Office of Emergency Management is encouraging property owners that have large brush and debris piles to take advantage of the lifted burn ban. With the height of hurricane season upon us, flying debris in a hurricane or high wind event could cause damage to property and possibly individuals, so it is best to take advantage of the lifted burn ban as soon as possible. All outdoor burning must follow the TCEQ’s regulations. Residents will be liable for any damages that occur from negligent burning practices.
