To the Editor:
The NYSDEC has proposed regulations to govern the use of outdoor wood boilers by proposed Part 247 regulations under the Environmental Conservation Law.
These will go into effect unless there is a mass outcry of the general population. Ultimately, these regulations will expand to govern/severely restrict the burning of wood or any other biomass for any reason.
To review the regs please go to www.dec.ny.gov/regulations/64459.html.
Please help us let the DEC and Albany know that we are able to responsibly burn wood on our own, and that we don’t need someone sitting behind a desk in Albany that has no clue how we live telling us how to live our lives.
