FUEL REDUCTION PROJECT BEGINS IN PU’U KA PELE FOREST RESERVE
(Waimea) – A DLNR Division of Forestry and Wildlife (DOFAW) Koke’e Fuel Reduction project is scheduled to begin work on Monday, April 19th. This Kaua’i DOFAW project is expected to take approximately three months depending on weather conditions. Crews will be mobilizing heavy equipment to Contour Road and Hikimoe Ridge Road within the Pu’u Ka Pele Forest Reserve early Monday morning. There will be no road closures at this time. Once the contractor moves to the next phase of work, sections of Contour Road will be closed during the week and will reopen for hunting days.
