Burning can be considered a nuisance due to the severity of the amount of air pollutant, the duration or frequency of combustion, the topography of the environment or weather conditions. Construction in Pennsylvania, including the City of Pittsburgh, is governed by the Pennsylvania Construction Code Act or PA Act No. 45 of 1999, also known as the Uniform Construction Code (UCC). The UCC adopts, in whole or in part, the I codes of the International Code Council (ICC).
Open burning is prohibited unless there is a permit or if it is done in a way that contributes to a negligible amount of air pollution, which means: all wood burning activities are prohibited on the days of the air quality action, with the exception of combustion for commercial food preparation.
