The RDEK recently completed an interface fuel treatment project on Crown land in the Baynes Lake Area.
The last step in the process is to pile the slash and burn it. Contractors will be on site to begin building the piles November 19th. If the conditions are right and the venting index is good, we will begin burning the piles November 19th. The work is expected to take approximately two weeks to complete.
The piles are located along the Jaffray-Baynes Lake Road near the Strawberry Hill area. The goal of this project was to reduce the fuel load in the area and reduce the risk of wildfires. If there are questions about the project please feel free to contact:
