Rattlesnake Creek Westside Community Shaded Fuel Break Project


Area to be treated.

Project Name: Rattlesnake Creek Westside Community Shaded Fuel Break Project

Status: Funded

Project Description

The Goal: Initiate a community defense shaded fuel break 200 ft. wide along the ridgeline along the western boundary of the Rattlesnake Creek Watershed.

The Objective: Reduce hazardous fuels on a total of 69 acres.

The West Community Shaded Fuel Break is a critical component of the Rattlesnake Creek Fire Safe Councils CWPP. This project will provide an approximate 2.85 mile (69 acre) north/south defense line that will tie in the bottom of the watershed with fire protection efforts along the road complex in the north end of the watershed.

The project will help to directly protect approximately 5,000 acres of private and public lands and 20 residences. Indirectly, this project will help protect approximately 7,500 acres and 14 residences within the adjacent Tyler Gulch Watershed. This north/south defense line, which ties in with the north end of the watershed, connects with the fire protection efforts, which further protects the headwater values of Rattlesnake Cr. (approximately 7,000 acres).
