Air Quality Program



The Air Quality Section of the Yurok Tribe Environmental Program monitors air quality and meteorological conditions in the Klamath Glen, Weitchpec, and Notchko. Real-time data from air quality monitoring stations are available here.

Additionally, this Section issues burn permits for lands within the Yurok Indian Reservation and administers the Tribal Air Quality Ordinance.

Burn Permits are available for both residential and commercial (field) burn activities. Residential burn permits are available for residents wishing to burn organic material only.  Burn permits do not allow the burning of construction debris or household wastes.  To apply for a burn permit, please download, complete, and return the Application form linked below to YTEP at 190 Klamath Boulevard, Klamath, CA 95548.  Upon evaluation by YTEP staff, you will be returned a burn permit and copy of relevant sections of the Smoke Management Plan as guidance in your activities.  Burn permits are valid for one year from date of issuance.
