Document Description
The purpose of this project is to remove flammable brush along the south border of the densely-populated Clearlake Riviera neighborhood, less than one mile to the southwest of Clear Lake. The terranin is steep and covered with extremely dense brush. With the prevailing wind direction being through terrain features from the southwest, creation of a fuel break at the south edge of the neighborhood will be a major asset in the event of a wildfire. In addition to stopping or slowing an advancing fire, the fuel break will be a location where crews could more effectively and safely combat a fire and improve the effectiveness of air tanker drops.
