UPDATED SEPTEMBER 26, 2017: Considering the vegetation regrowth and natural soil rehabilitation over the burn area, the removal of the majority of K-rail is recommended in two phases.  Based on the historical mud and debris flows over the past three rain seasons, staff recommends leaving some strategic K-rail areas in place to protect residences where the more significant mud and debris flows have occurred over the past three years.
