MOSQUITO POST-FIRE BAER ASSESSMENT RELEASED
MOSQUITO POST-FIRE BAER ASSESSMENT OVERVIEW PRESENTATION RELEASED
BAER Specialists Assess Mosquito Burned Area After a large wildfire, special actions are often necessary to provide for public safety and protect critical cultural and natural resources. Some fires create situations that require special efforts to prevent additional damage after the fire is contained. Loss of vegetation exposes soil to erosion; water runoff may increase and cause flooding, sediments may move downstream and damage houses or fill reservoirs and put endangered species and community water supplies at-risk.
