Forest Service "Hazardous Fuels Reduction" Activities Extend to North and South Shores of Upper Echo Lake
The U.S. Forest Service's Upper Echo Lake Hazardous Fuels Reduction Project commenced on September 30, 2013, while the agency was still in the midst of negotiations with the Echo Lakes Association and individual homeowners regarding proposed tree and brush removal on parcels surround the Lake.
