Commissioners Court voted, September 10, 2019, to implement a 90-day county burn ban due to dry conditions throughout Brazoria County. The ban will go into effect September 11th. The Keetch-Byram Drought Index (KBDI) for Brazoria County on September 10th is 608 (countywide average) and continues to rise as the heat and wind dry out the soil and vegetation. Once the KBDI reaches the 600-800 range, drought conditions are considered severe with an increasing concern for wildfires.
The burn ban prohibits outdoor burning within the unincorporated areas of Brazoria County only. Violations of the burn ban order include: burning of any combustible material outside of an enclosure, serving to contain all flames and/or sparks, or order such burning by others. Open flame pits are not permitted under the burn ban, but contained BBQ pits and grills are allowed. Any violation of this Order is a Class C Misdemeanor, punishable by a fine.
If weather conditions improve for safe outdoor burning within 90-days and the KBDI average is below 450 for five consecutive days, County Judge Matt Sebesta may authorize the burn ban lifted. Please refer to the Brazoria County website for updates concerning the burn ban at www.brazoriacountytx .gov
