To Burn or Not to Burn?
Outdoor heating devices are turning into a big issue for many municipalities. While outdoor furnaces are economical, they can produce excessive smoke, which may cause chronic health problems if nearby residents are exposed.
General Code clients in Wisconsin have been passing laws to regulate outdoor burning and prevent the health problems associated with excessive smoke. For example, the Town of Cedarburg, WI requires permits and restricts the substances that can be burned. View the chapter in their eCode360®.
