Has the Bonneville Power Administration, or its contractor, set enough fuel along the main power line that runs from Shelton to Fairmount?
I am referring to all the raw brush left along the tree line at the edge of the right-of-way.
Much of the small trees and brush they cut down to reduce the fire hazard have been just piled up and left to swelter in the sun.
Many of the small trees were cut between 2 and 10 feet above the ground, killing them.
This is a new practice that probably saves them a lot of time and money, but at great risk.
Previously, Bonneville would grind up all the fallen trees and brush to reduce this fire risk.
That was a better method.
