Jamestown Fire Mitigation
The St. Vrain and Left Hand Water Conservancy District, in collaboration with The Watershed Center, Lefthand Fire Protection District, and the Boulder Valley and Longmont Conservation Districts, is working on a fire mitigation project with the community of Jamestown. When a fire arrives, this project will provide a critical location for safe deployment of firefighters, reduce risk to the Jamestown community and surrounding areas, and decrease the likelihood of high-severity fire and its impacts to water resources and ecosystem health. This project is providing free fire mitigation to selected private and public properties. The Watershed Center is conducting outreach, coordinating implementation, and conducting pre- and post-project monitoring from the forest to the creek.
