“I’m pleased to announce that we have come to an agreement with the Environmental Chemical Corporation to continue the massive undertaking of debris clean-up in Sonoma, Napa and Mendocino Counties that were hard hit during the October wildfire siege. California is focused on removing the hazardous fire debris from these counties to expedite the recovery process for the survivors and their communities.

We have already completed work in Yuba, Butte, Nevada and Lake Counties.

The clean-up program has moved nearly 1,000,000 tons from the burn scarred areas, but there is still much work to be done and this contract sees that process through. Cal OES and our allied local, state and federal agencies are committed to keeping disaster recovery as our highest priority.”
