Forest Service Activity at Upper Echo Lake Threatens Water Quality
The Upper Echo Lake Hazardous Fuels Reduction Project being implemented by the Forest Service threatens to degrade water quality in both Upper and Lower Echo Lakes. The Project includes placement of large amounts of biomass adjacent to the lakes. In the photo below, piles have been placed in the foreground.
This material, which the Forest Service plans to burn in place, could soon end up in the lakes with devastating consequences.
