Mountain Meadows Creek Biomass

The project would provide for biomass harvesting to be conducted on approximately 1;700 acres of private forestland that is adjacent to Mountain Meadows Reservoir. This project will be designed to decrease the density of small understory trees reducing the amount of evapotranspiration and canopy interception. The project will also reduce fuel levels on lands adjacent to Mountain Meadows Reservoir and Creek decreasing the risk of catastrophic wildfire in those areas. The project can be conducted in phases over a time period of 1 to 5 years.
