Burning that is otherwise allowed based on the regulations discussed above may generally be conducted only outside of the corporate limits of a city or town; see 30 TAC § 111.219(2).
Burning will be allowed within the corporate limits of a city or town if the city or town has enacted an ordinance allowing burning consistent with the Texas Clean Air Act, Subchapter E, Authority of Local Governments; see 30 TAC § 111.219(2). Potential Liability
Finally, TCEQ regulations make it clear that compliance with these regulations does not excuse a person conducting a burn from any consequences, damages, or injuries resulting from the burn; see 30 TAC § 111.221.
In other words, these regulations do not offer limited liability for landowners who can prove compliance. Landowners should take care to ensure they do not act negligently when conducting a burn and should confirm liability insurance coverage before undertaking a burn.
