Burning of Slash Piles Begins as Fuel Management Treatment Program Wraps Up

The RDEK is continuing with our fuel management project in Baynes Lake along Jaffray-Baynes Lake Road near the Strawberry Hill area. We will begin burning the remaining slash piles today as we have a good venting index.

There will be smoke visible during the burn.

The goal of this project is 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 our Emergency Services Coordinator Travis Abbey at 1-888-478-7335 or tabbey@rdek.bc.ca.
