Project Description:
The Carr Fire began July 23, 2018 at approximately 1:15 pm from a suspected vehicle mechanical failure. The fire origin was within Whiskeytown NRA and spread to lands administered by the BLM and USFS in subsequent days. Extreme fire behavior occurred on July 28 and 29, when the fire burned to the east into Redding, California, driven by strong winds and plume dominated fire behavior. The Carr Fire burned across wide ecological gradients, and through previous fire scars from the 2004 French Fire, 2008 Motion Fire, and 2008 Whiskeytown Complex. The primary values at risk that were identified for Bureau of Land Management administered lands were: transportation infrastructure, Swasey Sediment Basin, Grass Valley Sediment Basin, critical cultural resources, and critical natural resources. This project addresses these values at risk. Section 106 SHPO determination of no effect: 2: Exempt activity as defined in the 2014 State Protocol, Section 10.0: Emergency Situations.
Project Location:
BLM administered lands to the west and northwest of the town of Redding, CA< surrounding Whiskeytown National Recreation Area. The fire was located in Shasta and Trinity Counties.
