Document Description
Use hand crews to rehabilitate a 0.3 mile long dozer constructed fireline and a O 1 mile handline that were installed during fire suppression activities associated with the Jones Fire wildfire incident (Aug. 2020) to reduce erosion, protect water quality, and stabilize steep slopes located in the Jones Bar Management Unit of the South Yuba River State Park. Work will begin immediately to prevent additional resource damage from forecasted precipitation and will include the following tasks: •Spread weed-free rice straw and install weed-free rice straw erosion waddles on areas of open slopes to stop potential soil erosion; •Use hand tools (ie. hand and chain saws) to reduce the size of already cut woody vegetation adjacent to, and along the sides of, the dozer line so that it is manageable to carry; •Cut additional dead/burnt smaller diameter vegetation from along the sides of the dozerline as needed; •Use hand crews (by foot) to transport the dead vegetation to various locations throughout the dozer line to intercept water runoff and stabilize the soil; and •Use hand tools (ie. shovels) to secure vegetation onto the slope with soil as needed.
