Erosion control, Watershed Emergency, Long-Term Environmental Management
An initial environmental assessment of the burn area included an analysis of post-wildfire threats to soils, vegetation, hydrologic functions such as debris flow in drainages and slopes, trees, transportation infrastructure, abandoned mines, cultural resources, and wildlife. It also provided recommendations for treatments that will reduce these risks or threats.
