The Comments are as important as the story.
My question is why the County does not let the foreign invasives, the arundo, castor beans, eucalyptus BURN
Then clear the area or kill off the arundo stumps and let natives flourish???

Some sample BS from the Cook Hill consultants
just a sample- from the comment to the story

"The vegetation in the Whitter Narrows Dam area is predominantly a riparian plant community, which is very high in moisture content "
high moisture content in the winter- Mexican Cane, Bamboo, arundo dries out in the summer and is highly flammable- so are the eucalyptus
" While is is not impossible for these plants to support a wildland fire, if ignited the fire behavior would be very low in heat intensity and would not exhibit extreme fire behavior conditions. Hence, the risk may be real, but the threat is low…"

Hello "no one."
