TO CONSTRUCT THE
Forest Meadows to Wylderdge Fuel Break
The CCRCD is currently working on the "Murphys-to-Forest Meadows WUI Fuelbreak" project.
CEQA tasks have been completed and a Notice of Exemption (NOE) has been filed with the Calaveras County Administrator's Office.
The project would reduce fuels on 174 acres and extend the existing fuelbreak network, providing protection for the northern and eastern sides of these developments as well as surrounding homes interspersed along the Utica Grade and in Hathaway Pines, Avery, and Arnold. Clearing this
area will also reduce the risk of fire ignition on Hwy 4, slow its spread, create clearance along evacuation routes and provide First Responders with critical extra time to achieve control on the initial attack. The project is designed to protect around 7,000 residences.
Project Cost: $440,608
Forest Meadows/Wylderidge Fuels Reduction Project
The work is being done under CAL FIRE Grant 5GG20172.
