What's New

February 27, 2014 - BurnSafe Map: An Online Burning Restrictions Map - Department of Natural Resources

The province is helping reduce the risk of wildfires by changing the way domestic brush burning is permitted. People no longer need a permit to burn domestic brush. The permit has been replaced with an online burning restrictions map to inform Nova Scotians when it is OK to burn a pile of brush. The map will show green, red, or yellow in each county, to let Nova Scotians know if it is safe to burn, unsafe to burn, or safe, with restrictions. The map will be updated daily. The online map and toll-free line will ensure everyone knows the risks of wildfire in all areas of the province, each day.

November 21, 2013 - New Map Shows Potential Radon Threat – Department of Natural Resources

The province is reminding property owners to test for radon and is publishing a new online map to help identify areas with the highest potential risk of exposure. Earlier maps had been largely based on geology. The new one uses test results from public buildings, such as schools and hospitals, and from private properties, and makes it easier to quantify the risk. Check out this new map by following the link below: http://gis3.natr.gov.ns.ca/Radon/index.html
