ODF Shuts Down Industrial Activities On Its Lands

The Oregon Department of Forestry has shut down all industrial activities on ODF lands in Hood River and Wasco Counties without a valid waiver from the state forester.  ODF is making the move to reduce the risk of potential fires ignited from equipment of other industrial activities.  The Dalles Unit’s acting forester Brian Reel said fire activity across the state is at historic levels and fire resources are stretched to capacity.  A regulated-use closure remains in effect for activities such as mowing of dry grass, chainsaw use, and open fire restrictions.  The closure also requires those traveling on forest roads to carry a shovel and a fire extinguisher or one gallon of water.  Visit www.odfcentraloregon.com for full details.
