Document Description
The City of Clearlake has entered into an agreement with the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (Calfire) to help remove hazardous vegetation in CAL FIRE's highest priority areas in Lake County, where Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) fuel loads have created dangerous conditions and increased risk of catastrophic wildfire. The project includes fuel reduction to improve emergency access and reduce the continuity of fuels on City owned properties as there are critical values at risk in the immediate area including but not limited to a Hospital, Elementary School, Public Community College, County Court Facility, County Public Health Facility, Big Box Retail, High Density Housing Projects, and Disabled Living Facilities. It is also in the Yolo County Water Shed that serves thousands of people and thousands of acres of agricultural land. Fuel reduction activities will be carried out using a variety of methods including mastication, hand crews, chipping, grazing, dozers, hand/machine piling and brush burning. Overall ground disturbance will be kept to a minimum
