South Georgia burning restrictions lifted

June 14, 2006

Grady Co.- Rainfall from Tropical Storm Alberto will allow some south Georgians to burn unwanted debris.

Fields and backyards across south Georgia received enough moisture Tuesday to lift burn restrictions Wednesday. The signs at many forestry offices were changed to low risk and will likely be at moderate Thursday.

"Since we got a good general rain in most areas yesterday we've left it up to our individual counties to issue permits based on the rainfall they've received," said Greg Findley, District Forester.

Restrictions may still exist in the western most counties including Seminole, Early, Calhoun and Clay and Baker where they did not receive significant amounts of rainfall.
