Chetco Bar Fire Daily Update, September 22, 2017 (Chetco Bar Fire Wildfire)

Wildland Fire Incidents - Fri, 09/22/2017 - 11:09
With scattered rain showers and high relative humidity (RH) levels reducing fire activity over the last several days, fire crews have continue to conduct patrols identifying areas for suppression repair while continuing mop up operations. Slash chipping and equipment recovery have become the primary focus of fire crews as they begin the process of returning containment lines to their previously natural states. Fire suppression repair is a major concern after every wildfire. Left disturbed, containment lines can affect natural drainages causing soil erosion, stunting natural vegetation recovery, damaging fish habitats, and reducing water quality. Repair crews work to limit these effects through a variety of techniques, including the installation of water bars. Water bars divert the flow of rain or run off and prevent the water from carving channels through the recently disturbed soil. Crews also use heavy equipment to backfill soil from trenches and dozer lines, while also recontouring...
