NPS to Conduct Prescribed Fire at Echo Bay 61-06
Contact: Roxanne Dey, 702.293.8947
NPS fire personnel will conduct a prescribed burn on three acres of the sewer lagoons just north of the Echo Bay trailer village. This area is located in the Echo Bay developed area on the Nevada side of Lake Mead. The burn will begin on or after December 1, depending on weather conditions. Unwanted grass reeds and cattails have accumulated in the lagoons and have become a nuisance and fire hazard.
Smoke from the prescribed fire may be visible near Echo Bay, along Northshore Road, and as far north as the Overton Beach developed area.
If members of the public have any questions or concerns, please call the NPS Fire Management Office at 702.293.8989.
