A largescale 44-county fuel reduction treatment is in the works through the Bureau of Land Management, and they are looking for your thoughts. The plan to expedite fuel reduction treatments and fire protection efforts near high fire-risk areas will spread across the public lands throughout California and northwest Nevada. The statewide Wildland-Urban Interface fuels treatments Environmental Assessment (EA) will look to complete projects on around 900,000 acres near rural communities. BLM’s CA State Director says the goal is to double down on efforts to protect local communities by reducing hazardous fuels through streamlining on-the-ground projects. This will be done by creating fuel breaks and thinning forest floors. You can comment on the proposed project by submitting a letter on the issues, potential impacts, alternatives, and project design features presented in the environmental assessment by visiting eplanning.blm.gov All comments will be considered until January 20th.
