Owners Advised To Vaccinate Their Horses Against West Nile Virus

The Washington State Department of Agriculture is recommending that horse owners vaccinate their horses against the virus. Last year, the state had 72 infected horses, the highest incidence in the nation. Typically, 50 percent of these animals die or need to be euthanized.

"It's a very serious illness for a horse, and there isn't much a vet can do after it gets sick," said Jason Kelly, Communications Director with the Washington State Department of Agriculture. "The best thing for a horse owner to do is to spend a few dollars and get their animal vaccinated."


NEW Cost-Share rates have recently been approved by the ACCD Board of Supervisors!

There is also Riparian Cost-Share opportunities available.

Please contact the District for more information!

Don't Forget Your 2015
Agricultural Burn Permit!

Just a reminder that burning by commercial agricultural operations requires a permit except when burning orchard prunings, natural vegetation along fence lines, irrigation and drainage ditches or natural vegetation blown by the wind. A grower must still comply with their fire protection authoritys notification/ approval process prior to igniting any outdoor fire even if an air quality permit is not required.

Two types of commercial agricultural permits are available. Spot burn permits, which are available through the District, allow burning of up to 10 acres total area of unforeseen and unpredictable small areas such as small weed patches, spots of heavy residue, and equipment plugs and dumps.

Field burn permits are issued for any burning which is definable and predictable. Any individual burn area, which consists of over 10 contiguous acres, would be considered a field and requires a field permit. Permits are issued by the Dept. of Ecology. Applications are available at the District office.

Burn Fees Effective July 1st, 2012
Field Burns $3.75 per acre - $37.50 Minimum
Spot Burn Permits - $37.50
