Bald Mountain/Pole Creek Fire Suppression Repair

The overall objective is to repair damage caused by fire suppression activities and to return the affected area to pre-fire conditions as close as possible. Work is specifically designed to minimize surface and gully erosion, minimize sediment delivery to stream channels, restore conditions to pre-fire drainage patterns, minimize loss of soil productivity due to potential erosion in cleared areas and minimize the introduction or spread of noxious weed infestations. There are a handful goals with this work: 1) Water barring fire lines drain water off the fire line and prevent concentrated flow and ultimately soil erosion, 2) Removing berms on dozer lines is to eliminate the water channeling effect and3) Repairing roads is to return drainage elements to a functioning stable condition so that they effectively route water off the road, minimize erosion and repair damaged driving surfaces
