Mosquito Post-Fire BAER
News - 10/07/2022


The Forest Service (USFS)—Tahoe and Eldorado National Forests (NF) completed the BAER post-fire assessment of the Mosquito burned areas and affected watersheds to determine their response, soil conditions, potential threats, and recommended BAER emergency stabilization measures and actions on National Forest System (NFS) lands. BAER emergency treatments and activities are designed to decreased possible impacts to critical values from the burned areas during rainstorm events such as: life and safety, property, critical natural resources, and cultural resources.

The BAER team’s assessment report describing the soil conditions, potential threats to critical values, and recommended stabilization treatment activities has been presented to both the Tahoe and Eldorado NF managers and staff. After their review and approval, the assessment report will be shared with the USFS Pacific Southwest Regional Office and its National Washington Office for review, approval, and funding of the recommended BAER treatments before the report is considered final and can be shared with the public.

In the meantime, we are sharing the BAER team’s assessment and findings overview presentation: NOTE: Attached below as “Related Information” is a PDF document called “Mosquito Post-Fire BAER Assessment Overview_PUBLIC”.
