Shasta County homeowners near burned areas receive letter offering erosion control

Residents in Shasta County have received letters in the mail about erosion control to help with their areas that burned in the Carr Fire.

A few homeowners in Shasta County received a letter in the mail from Western Shasta Resource Conservation District - a locally based district about offering services to help prevent erosion in burned areas with the help of state and federal grant funds.

Some residents in Shasta County have received letters in the mail about erosion control to help with their areas that burned in the Carr Fire.

The letter from Western Shasta Resource Conservation District- a local-based district- offered services to help prevent erosion in burned areas. The funding coming from state and federal grant funds.

Jen Sunde from Redding received the letter since her property was touched by the fire.

"All around the property, there are about 2 1/2 acres that we are on and then up the hill and down the sides, the fires have come between and down below," said Sunde.

Since then, she said erosion prevention on her property hasn't been made.

"We did prior to the fire. Just clearing and stuff like that but nothing since the fire," said Sunde.

She said her mother lost her home just a near her own home and that they too received a letter from the Western Shasta Resource.

Her mother said they came by their property and placed waddles to prevent erosion among other treatments.

Sunde said that helped them make a decision on the offering.

"Yes, we signed the letter and agreed to it if that's what they were going to do," said Sunde.

Western Shasta Resource said they'll be focusing on areas near waterways that enter the Sacramento River between Keswick Dam and other areas like Rock Creek, Carter Creek, Middle Creek, Jenny Creek, and Salt Creek.

Since then, Sunde said her husband gave Western Shasta Resource permission and are expecting them to arrive. It's unclear when the erosion control will begin.
