Online smoke model aids landownersburning pastures


While state officials expect reduced burning of Flint Hills’ pastures this spring, ranchers and landowners are encouraged to use the smoke model provided on and contact local officials when considering the timing of prescribed burns. The model predicts the contribution to air quality in urban areas. Local officials provide information about whether it is safe to conduct a prescribed burn.

Residents of Butler, Chase, Chautauqua, Cowley, Elk, Geary, Greenwood, Johnson, Lyon, Marion, Morris, Pottawatomie, Riley, Sedgwick, Wabaunsee and Wyandotte counties are prohibited by state regulations from burning waste, structures, vegetation or any other materials during the month of April. This 30-day burn ban does not apply to prescribed burning of pastures and Conservation Reserve Program acres.
