The community is invited to an online presentation on Wednesday, Nov. 3, that will go over the results of a recent federal report describing the post-wildfire conditions in the Twenty-Five Mile Creek Watershed near Lake Chelan, site of one of the largest wildfires this year in the state.

The Zoom meeting will be 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Nov. 3, when federal, state and local agencies will discuss the Burned Area Emergency Response (BAER) assessment. To sign in, look at the details above.

“If you are a property owner in the Twenty-Five Mile Creek area, we strongly encourage you to listen in on this discussion,” said Sgt. Jason Reinfeld of Chelan County Emergency Management. “The impacts of the Twenty-Five Mile Fire, unfortunately, will be felt for several years to come. At the meeting, we will talk about what precautions property owners should take.”

First reported on Aug. 15, the Twenty-Five Mile Fire burned more than 22,200 acres, almost all of which is within the Twenty-Five Mile Creek Watershed. The fire’s cause remains under investigation.

In September, the U.S. Forest Service assembled a BAER team to assess the damage caused by the fire to the landscape, including soils impacted by the fire. BAER assessments measure post-fire conditions and determine the potential for increased flooding, debris flows and rock slides.

The BAER report estimates a moderate to high level of debris-flow hazards for most of the area burned by the local fire. The report, which includes a map showing the debris flow risks and runoff potentials, is available online.

On Wednesday, attendees will hear from a variety of agencies and learn about resources available to private property owners. Among the agencies that will present information at the online meeting are:

U.S. Forest Service
Washington Department of Natural Resources
Natural Resources Conservation Service
Cascadia Conservation District
NOAA National Weather Service
Chelan County Public Works
Chelan County Emergency Management               

The meeting will also be recorded for people who cannot attend. The link will be available on the Cascadia Conservation District website.

 

En la reunión del 3 de noviembre se hablará sobre la evaluación posterior a los incendios forestales del incendio 25-Mile
La comunidad está invitada a una presentación en línea el miércoles 3 de noviembre, que repasará los resultados de un informe federal reciente que describe las condiciones posteriores al incendio forestal en la cuenca de Twenty-Five Mile Creek cerca de Lake Chelan, sitio de uno de los incendios forestales más grandes en el estado este año.


La reunión por Zoom será de 4:30 a 6:30 p.m. el miércoles, cuando las agencias federales, estatales y locales hablarán sobre la evaluación de Respuesta a Emergencias del Área Quemada (BAER). Para iniciar sesión, consulte los detalles a continuación.


“Si usted es dueño de una propiedad en el área de Twenty-Five Mile Creek, le recomendamos calurosamentw que escuche esta conversación,” dijo el Sargento Jason Reinfeld de Gestión de Emergencias del Condado de Chelan. “Los impactos del incendio de 25 Mile, desafortunadamente, se sentirán por varios años. En la reunión, hablaremos sobre las precauciones que los propietarios deben tomar."


Reportado por primera vez el 15 de agosto, el incendio de 25 Mile quemó más de 22.200 acres, casi todos dentro de la cuenca del arroyo de 25 Mile. La causa del incendio sigue bajo investigación.


En septiembre, el Servicio Forestal reunió un equipo BAER para evaluar el daño causado por el fuego al paisaje, incluidos los suelos quemados por el fuego. Las evaluaciones de BAER miden las condiciones posteriores al incendio y determinan el potencial de aumento de inundaciones, flujos de escombros y deslizamientos de rocas.


El informe BAER estima un nivel moderado a alto de peligros de flujo de escombros para la mayor parte del área quemada por el incendio local. El informe, que incluye un mapa que muestra los riesgos del flujo de escombros y los potenciales de escorrentía, está disponible en línea en https://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/article/7846/67523/
El miércoles, los asistentes escucharán a una variedad de agencias y aprenderán sobre los recursos disponibles para los propietarios privados. La reunión también se grabará para las personas que no puedan asistir. El enlace estará disponible en el sitio web del Distrito de Conservación de Cascadia: www.cascadiacd.org.
