 Is aerial ash scattering safe on the environment?
Yes. The EPA funded studies in 1999 to determine the effects of aerial ash scattering. It was found to have no significant effect on the environment. Cremations are done between 1,400 deg. F. to 2,100 deg. F. so, the ashes are now purified.Back to top

 Are there regulations governing aerial ash scattering?
The FAA has a list of regulations for the pilot and aircraft. Otherwise, no (Colorado). However, if scattering by foot, you will need to get permission from the property owner or controlling agency if in a National Forest. Back to top
