Watershed Hazard and Sediment Mitigation Underway Around Lake Berryessa, LNU Complex Fire Burn Scars

As rain falls across Northern California, crews from the California Conservation Corps are busy installing watershed hazard mitigation measures. Burn scars all over California are susceptible to debris flows when rain falls. However, those areas that have structural loss due to fires are of great concern due to the hazardous materials found within them, things like arsenic, lead and plastics. Napa County contacted Cal OES needing assistance with watershed hazard mitigation, so Cal OES then reached out to our partner the CCC who in turn launched an all-out offensive on pollution mitigation.
