Campo Hills Fuelbreak
NOE - Notice of Exemption
This project is intended to provide enhanced defensible space to homes in the Campo Hills subdivision, located within the unincorporated community of Campo in San Diego County. The intent of this project will be to eliminate the vertical and horizontal continuity of fuels located within 300' of the property boundary of the Campo Hill subdivision's northern and eastern edge. This project work will be implemented on approximately 20 acres by CAL FIRE hand crews using only hand tools and chainsaws. There will be no ground disturbing activities associated with this project. Native vegetation targeted for removal will include Chamise, California buckwheat, and various species of Sage and Sagebrush that commonly occur within the project area. It is anticipated that targeting only these species of vegetation will result in removal of approximately 75% of the total fuel loading within the project area. The northern and eastern edges of the Fuelbreak will be scalloped to present a more natural appearance. All slash generated as a result of this project will be chipped and spread on site. Chips will be spread to the depth not to exceed 3". This project will be implemented under CAL FIRE's Hazardous Fuels Treatment grant program.
