AQI (AIR QUALITY INDEX)
The AQI scale is an environmental indicator that provides an understandable index of environmental quality, namely air quality. The AQI ratings are 0-50= good; 51-100 = moderate; 101 and higher= unhealthy
ATMOSPHERIC CONDITIONS
Shall mean looping, coning, fanning, lofting, and fumigation as described herein:
a. 
Large-scale turbulent eddies cause sizable parcels of air, together with portions of the plume, to deviate from a straight downwind direction.
b. 
The shape of the plume is commonly vertically symmetrical about what is called the plume line.
c. 
Suppressed vertical mixing, but not horizontal mixing entirely causes the plume to spread only parallel to the ground and appears to take on the shape of a fan as seen from below.
d. 
The lapse rate in the upper portion of the plume is unstable and in the lower it is stable. Mixing is vigorous in the upward direction.
e. 
Where the plume is released just under an elevated inversion layer. When the low-level unstable lapse rate reaches the plume, the effluent suddenly mixes downward toward the ground. This condition poses a potentially serious air pollution situation.
FIREWOOD
Shall mean trunks and branches of trees and bushes not including leaves, needles, vines, or brush smaller than three (3) inches in diameter.
GARBAGE
Shall mean any solid, semisolid or liquid waste generated from residential, commercial, and industrial sources, including, trash, refuse, rubbish, industrial wastes manure, vegetable or animal wastes or other discarded solid or semisolid wastes.
REHS (REGISTERED ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH SPECIALISTS)
Shall mean a licensed professional with a four (4) year college degree in the sciences.
SEASONED WOOD
Shall mean firewood that has a moisture content of twenty (20%) percent or less by weight.
SOLID FUEL
Shall mean any wood, wood based product, non-gaseous or non-liquid fuel including but not limited to: manufactured logs, wood or other pellet products. Not including solid fuel intended for cooking, such as charcoal.
TREATED WOOD
Shall mean any wood that has been chemically impregnated, painted or similarly modified to improve resistance to insects or weathering.
WOOD-BURNING DEVICE
Shall mean any wood burning stove or heater, pellet fueled device, fireplace, or any indoor permanently installed device used to bum any solid fuel for space heating or aesthetic purposes.
[Ord. #09-69]
No person shall cause or allow any of the following materials to be burned in a wood-burning device: garbage, treated wood, wet or non-seasoned firewood, rotted or diseased firewood, waste petroleum products, paints and solvents, coal, animal carcasses, glossy or colored paper, salt water drift wood, particle board, plywood, plastics and any material not intended or manufactured for use as fuel in a wood-burning device.
[Ord. #09-69]
a. 
No person shall cause or allow the operation of a wood-burning device when its operation and use due to weather or atmospheric conditions cause the emissions from the wood-burning device to remain close to ground level and inhibit the emissions from dissipating as they would during normal atmospheric conditions resulting is offensive odors and or smoke conditions thus creating a public health nuisance. The Atmospheric Conditions include but are not limited to: looping, coning, fanning, lofting, and fumigation.
b. 
An operator of a wood-burning device shall immediately discontinue the use of the wood-burning device when he becomes aware, either through his own observations or that of another, that the emissions from the wood-burning device are remaining close to the ground, causing smoke, particulate or odors to be present in the surrounding area. The operation of a wood-burning device shall be prohibited during this time and until such time that these conditions no longer exist. In determining to cease operation of the wood-burning device due consideration shall be given to numerous weather variables that cannot be predicted in advance that affect the dispersion of the plume from a wood-burning, device and the proximity of nearby buildings and structures, natural and man made, which can adversely affect the dispersion of the plume from a wood-burning device causing the emissions from a wood-burning device to remain close to ground level and not dissipate as during normal operating conditions.
[Ord. #09-69]
Operation of a wood-burning device shall be prohibited during the days when the New Jersey State AQI is above 100. Operation shall be prohibited at all times the AQI is above 100 and until the AQI falls below 100 or is considered to be moderate or good as defined by the AQI unless the Wood-Burning device is the only source of heat for the home and the outside temperature is below fifty (50) degrees Fahrenheit. The New Jersey AQI level can be found at www.state.nj.us/dep/airmon/.
[Ord. #09-69]
a. 
Any person violating any provision of this § 35-17 shall, upon conviction thereof, be liable for the penalties stated in Chapter 1, § 1-5 of this Code.
b. 
A separate offense shall be deemed committed on each day on which a violation occurs.
c. 
The provisions of this section shall be enforced by a licensed REHS within the Department of Health and Human Services.
