Lane Regional Air Protection Agency


Current Burn Status


With the support of its member entities, which include Lane County and the cities of Eugene, Springfield, Cottage Grove and Oakridge, LRAPA carries out its mission to protect and enhance air quality through a combination of regulatory and non regulatory programs and activities.

Home Wood Heating Advisory

Lane County has a Home Wood Heating Advisory Program that lets people know when air quality is becoming unhealthy and informs them if burning is allowed. A person is in violation of the program if their home's chimney emits visible smoke during a "red" advisory. The program is mandatory in Eugene, Springfield, Oakridge, and voluntary throughout the rest of the county. LRAPA understands that pollution has no boundaries and asks that all local residents abide by the advisory program.

Daily Advisory

The system uses a simple red, yellow, green system to indicate the daily advisory from October 1 thru May 31.
  • A green advisory means air quality is good and burning is allowed.
  • A yellow advisory indicates that air quality is deteriorating and burning is cautioned against.
  • A red advisory indicates that air quality is poor and burning is prohibited. Pellets stoves may be used if they produce are no visible emissions.
