The City has hired Ecological Restoration Services, LLC (ERS) to conduct a prescribed burn around the 3 stormwater ponds within McKee Farms Park on April 18, 2014.
The link below shows map of the 3 prescribed burn areas (around the Northwest Pond, North Pond, and South Pond) and provides further details on the prescribed burns. We’d appreciate your help in forwarding this communication to any neighbors or associations within the area.
On the day of the prescribed burn we ask that you help ERS out with the following:
1. Please close your windows and doors so that smoke doesn’t enter your home.
2. Please allow the crews to do their work uninterrupted, distractions can increase risks.
3. Burns will be conducted between 8:00 am and 5:00pm. Anyone with concerns or serious respiratory issues, please call Dan (ERS) at 608-698-5144.
If you’re interested in serving as a volunteer attendant outside of the prescribed burn areas to greet park visitors and explain the work being done, or if you have any questions or comments related to this project, please contact either of us listed below.
Thank you for your help!
