Lake Naconiche Prescribed Fire Overview MapImage options: [ Full Size ]

Texas A&M Forest Service is planning for prescribed burns to take place at Lake Naconiche during 2022. During the year, the Lake Naconiche Park and Lake Naconiche Spillway will be burned for a total of 66 acres.

Lake Naconiche Park – 17 acres
Proposed burning dates: 11/1/2021 – 4/29/2022

Lake Naconiche Spillway – 49 acres
Proposed burning dates: 11/1/2021 – 4/29/2022

These burns are designed to meet multiple land management objectives including reducing the accumulation of hazardous fuels, improve forest health, control invasive species and to protect infrastructure of the dam by removal of woody vegetation and enhance the growth of grasses.

Each prescribed burn has defined weather parameters and firing patterns to ensure the objectives for each unit have a high potential for success. Texas A&M Forest Service personnel will monitor all prescribed burns to evaluate achievement of goals and help guide future prescriptions.

Nearby residents can expect some lingering smoke effects overnight after the burns and may see some moderate to heavy smoke impacts for short periods during ignition operations. These effects will be mitigated by burning on days with good ventilation so that smoke will be dispersed away from communities.

More information will be published as weather conditions allow for safe burning operations.
