Residential/Agricultural Burn season will end April 30, 2018. Burning will not be allowed after that date.
The Aromas Chipper Program has begun and will run until May 19, 2018. CAL FIRE, the Aromas Tri-County Fire District and the Aromas Water District are working cooperatively to help reduce the risk of wildfire in our neighborhoods. Bring your yard trimmings into the Water District lot next to the firehouse, drop them off and we'll chip them for FREE! While you're here be sure to take some wood chips and mulch home with you. That's FREE too.
Now is the time to reduce the fuels around your property to help provide a Defensible Space around your home "one chip at a time." Print the picture for more details on the Aromas Chipper Program. ... See MoreSee Less
