Brazoria County Burn Ban Lifted Today 8/29/22The burn ban has been lifted for Brazoria County. County Judge Matt Sebesta lifted the ban effective Monday, August 29, 2022. 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.The Brazoria County Office of Emergency Management encourages property owners with 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.
