Greenville Recovery Update Following Dixie Fire


Five property owners are able to rebuild in Greenville. Five lots that were destroyed by the Dixie fire have been certified complete from the debris removal program through the state in a report given to the Plumas board of supervisors by Disaster Recovery Operation Center Director, Dennis Schmidt. The lots have been given back to the county and will be returned to the property owners to begin to rebuild. A total of 180 lots have been cleared of debris and are awaiting final steps in the process to be completed including soil sample collection and testing. Within the county there are 11 arbor strike teams, 16 debris removal crews and 4 soil sample collecting teams assisting with the phase 2 of debris removal.

A portable facility will be installed today on the Plumas county sheriff’s substation. The building was among several of the county buildings that were destroyed in the Dixie fire as it burned through the Town of Greenville on August 4th. Additional utilities and electrical will be installed throughout this week. The sheriff’s substation is expected to be operational by Monday.
