Dust and smoke issues in the Great Basin Unified Air Pollution Control District

Saunders Pond burn March 24, 2016

Posted by admin on March 18, 2016

On April 24, 2016, LADWP did a prescribed burn of 28.5 acres of bulrush (tules) as part of a wildlife or game habitat improvement project.  Although the burn was approved by the Great Basin Unified Air Pollution Control District, smoke did not disperse as well as hoped.  The active firing burn lasted from 9:45 – 11:10. The smoke got good initial lift but, starting at about noon, a significant portion passed directly by the District’s webcams at Laws at ground level.  Videos may from these webcams be viewed at Laws South – 3/24/16 and Laws North 3/24/16.
