Federal Air Rules for Reservations (FARR) and
the Nez Perce Reservation Burn Permit Program

The Nez Perce Tribe operates a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) delegated burn permit program within the exterior boundaries of the 1863 Nez Perce Reservation pursuant to the EPA Federal Air Rules for Reservations (FARR).  The FARR protects human health and the environment through the administration of agricultural, open, and forestry burn permitting. EPA retains enforcement authority of the rules.
