Due to the extended hot, dry and windy weather in Delta County, open fires have been banned until further notice. All outdoor fires, including agricultural burning are prohibited. Campfires are restricted to permanent fire pits or fire rings at private residences or within developed recreational sites such as a campground or picnic area. Fires may also be contained within liquid fueled or gas fueled stoves, lanterns or heating devices.
The ban also prohibits the personal use of all fireworks and target shooting with explosive targets. Smoking is permitted only within an enclosed vehicle or building, or in an area at least six feet in diameter that is barren or cleared of all combustible material.
The restrictions apply to all unincorporated areas of Delta County.
Two of the four marijuana questions on the November ballot were narrowly approved by voters in the City of Delta. Measure 2F allows the establishment of medical marijuana centers. Measure 2H permits the establishment of medical marijuana cultivation, testing, research and manufacturing facilities.
