 Burn Ban Lifted

On March 10, 2014, County Judge Dan A. Gattis lifted the burn ban for unincorporated areas of Williamson County.  Use care in conducting controlled burns.

Prior to conducting controlled burns, please call and report your controlled burn to Williamson County Communications at (512) 943-1389.  Williamson County Communications should be able to inform you of any burning restrictions that  may exist. 

Prevention Message: 

Although some areas of Texas received rain, the state remains in a drought.  Use caution when outdoors, it only takes one spark.  Homes near wildland areas are at risk of burning in a wildfire, but a little advance preparation can greatly increase your home’s chance of survival.  Remove dead vegetation within 30 feet of your house.  Trim tree branches up from the ground and away from your house. Clean needles and dry leaves out of gutters. Create a firewise space around your house that is lean, clean, and green.
