A complete Ban on recreational ATV/UTV use is now in effect within Lac Ste. Anne County due to EXTREME fire risk. This Ban will remain in effect until further notice.
Due to EXTREME fire risk
Due to low precipitation, high winds and warm temperatures, the fine fuel load – grass and light leafy vegetation, in all regions of the county is at an extreme risk for ignition from ATV and UTV exhaust systems. Tall grass, crop residue etc., along trail systems and wildland areas often can ignite from direct exhaust, and/or direct contact with exhaust and sparks from mufflers and piping from these vehicle types readily at this time of year. This Ban includes all off-road vehicles such as quads and dirt bikes.
Please note: required agricultural and industrial operator ATV/UTV use is exempt from this Ban; however, extreme caution and continuous monitoring are advised.
