Cheyenne Board of Public Utilities
Wildfire Emergency Response Plan
We provided the City of Cheyenne's Board of Public Utilities with technical analysis and planning support for their Wildfire Emergency Response Plan. We first completed an analysis of hazards to watersheds and water supply by combining the analysis from the US Forest Service's Bark Beetle Incident Watershed Assessments. The combined wildfire/watershed assessment results are presented in a report (see public documents below) and shown in the slide show below.
The results of the wildfire/watershed assessment were used to support the Wildfire Emergency Response Planning work. In addition, we provided a review of post-fire remediation methods, defined post-fire planning, and analyzed potential impacts to water quality and their water collection and treatment systems.
