CCC Paradise Flood Preps

Tahoe and Napa Corpsmembers dig trenches, carry stakes, and lay wattles to prevent erosion and debris flows in the Town of Paradise.

California Conservation Corpsmembers worked around the Thanksgiving holiday to bolster hillsides in the Town of Paradise burned bare by the Camp Fire.

Two crews began the work prior to the fire’s full containment and before the season’s first rains. Corpsmembers are deploying rolls of hay called wattles along with sandbags and silt fencing as the primary defenses to erosion.

The work done by Corpsmembers is intended to prevent flooding and debris flow expected from incoming rain and future winter storms.
