Westwater fire restrictions

In case anyone is headed to that part of Utah to raft, starting tomorrow at midnight wood fire restrictions go in to place. You can still use charcoal in a firepan and stoves, but no open wood fires even in a fire pan.

Moab Area Fire Restrictions has a map outlined.

I can't remember, but I think you still need to have a firepan with you to launch at WW? Am I wrong?

You are correct for overnight trips, and for single day trips not in the Apr.01 - Oct.31 window: Westwater permit requirements

Happy June - due to the hot and dry conditions the fire restriction are about to begin throughout southeastern utah...

The Westwater private stipulations do not require you to carry a fire pan on single day trips between April 1 and October 31. However, overnight trips are required to carry a fire pan throughout the year.

Thanks for keeping it safe...
