All burning permits issued shall be subject to all applicable fee, permitting, penalty, and enforcement provisions of this chapter. The permitted burning shall not cause damage to public health or the environment.
Any entity issuing a permit under this section may charge a fee at the level necessary to recover the costs of administering and enforcing the permit program.
