Update January 2021 – This work is now complete and we will post project summary information soon.
In partnership with the Village of Nakusp, NACFOR is conducting wildfire risk reduction work on municipal lands between November 12th and December 15th, 2020. Work will be conducted on weekdays between 7am and 4pm.
The work will begin in the Nakusp Community Park, including the Municipal Campground and along 10th Avenue, as well as all other treed locations within the Park between 8th Avenue NW, 4th Street NW, 10th Avenue NW and Broadway Street. (See the link to the map below)
The second work site will be the waterfront trail between the public beach and 4th Street NW.
Public access to these two areas will be affected during the work period.
PLEASE WATCH FOR ACTIVE WORK AREA SIGNAGE AND STAY OUT OF CLOSED WORK AREAS.
The objectives of this work are to reduce the risk of interface fire in a priority treatment area as identified in the Regional District of Central Kootenay Area K and the Village of Nakusp Community Wildfire Protection Plan (July 2018) and to maintain aesthetic and other property values within municipally-owned lots cared for by the Village of Nakusp.
The strategy is to reduce the likelihood of surface fuel ignition and control the intensity and the spread of fire by eliminating surface and ladder fuels. Specific strategies implemented to achieve fuel reduction include surface and ladder fuel reduction, crown separation and snag removal.
