Burning outdoors, or open burning, is allowed in Eagle and Watertown Townships with a current burning permit. You can obtain a permit free of charge online at http://www.deltami.gov/?page_id=7535. If you require an immediate permit, you must come into either the LGRFA fire station of the Delta Township Fire Department (811 N. Canal Rd. across from Horrocks) during normal business hours. Permits are good for one (1) calendar year (Jan. 1st - Dec. 31st). After receiving a permit, you must call (517)321-6622 ext. 1 BEFORE you burn to make sure burning is authorized for that day. Each January you must get a new yearly permit.
Burning is limited to natural materials such as logs, brush, and leaves. The burning of petroleum based products, shingles, tires, plastics, or other construction material is not allowed. Fires must be attended by an adult at all times and must be fully extinguished when finished. A permit is not required for fires enclosed in a metal or masonry container with holes no larger then 3/4". For additional conditions and regulations, please refer to your township burning ordinance.
