Prescribed Burn Notice: Central Water Reclamation Facility Property

Prescribed Burn Notice

The Emerald Coast Utilities Authority (ECUA) will be conducting prescribed burn operations on ECUA property in the vicinity of the Central Water Reclamation Facility, starting on Thursday, March 7 through Saturday, March 9.  ECUA’s burn-certified contractor will conduct the burn operations, which are scheduled to begin at approximately 9:00 A.M. each day.  These burn activities are a part of ECUA’s management plan for the ecological restoration of forest lands at the CWRF site.

The ECUA’s CWRF property is in the Gonzalez community and mostly lies south of Becks Lake Road, west of the Escambia River.  A small amount of ECUA’s property north of Becks Lake Road will be included in this prescribed burn operation.

Although every effort will be made to ensure smoke will not affect roadways, drivers should exercise caution in the event smoke does lead to reduced visibility on the area’s roads.

For additional information, contact ECUA Customer Service at 476-0480.
