Impacts of Parks Beach Fires 2004
In 2002, the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency (PSCAA) issued Parks a Notice
of Violation (NOV) for "allowing" illegal fuels to be burned
at Alki Beach. Parks responded by increasing 2003 staffing levels at
Golden Gardens and Alki beaches during peak times to educate people
on beach fire rules and regulations. This reduced illegal fuels burned
on our beaches by 50% (to 177 tons annually), and illegal fires by 30%.
