Camp Fire debris removal set to resume

PARADISE — Debris removal operations for properties destroyed by the Camp Fire will resume on Monday, following a period of extremely wet weather that halted crews from continuing their work.
The California Department of Resources, Recycling and Recovery, in coalition with the California Office of Emergency Services, have been working on removing debris from the Camp Fire on more than 11,000 properties that applied for government assistance.
“The Incident Management Team ordered a temporary pause in debris removal operations earlier this month as rain threatened to worsen conditions on already saturated lots,” according to a press release from CalRecycle, sent on Friday. “In addition to worker safety concerns, the wet conditions limited the ability of designated disposal facilities to accept materials.”
The county has received more than 11,000 Right of Entry forms, and assessed nearly 6,000 of them. Two hundred and eighty-seven sites have had debris removal completed and 91 have had soil samples tested and approved. CalRecycle reported that no sites have moved on to the fourth step — erosion control — and no sites have been approved in a final inspection.
Eighty debris removal crews will restart work on Monday, consisting of three to five workers each; and an additional 10 crews will begin on Wednesday, March 20. Related Articles
