Crestview burn

Posted by admin on January 18, 2012

The Inyo National Forest burned 121 acres yesterday at Crestview, east of Highway 395.  At the time of ignition, there was still a slight haze in the Owens Valley from a Martin Luther King’s Day dust event.  The Great Basin Unified Air Pollution Control District approved the burn despite this because there are several days of good dispersion forecasted as a weekend storm approaches.  Southwest surface winds and northwest transport winds made for a nearly ideal presription for ignition.
