Graham County requests bids to remove a total of approximately 180 acres (Attachment D) of tamarisk in multiple fire breaks strategically located along the Upper Gila River corridor by September 1, 2022. The goal is to reduce the fuel loading so the area treated will not carry a fire or that it is such that flame heights can be managed using local resources, thus stopping a fire from advancing unchecked. There are two types of treatment areas: 1. Establishment of seven (7) fire breaks of approximately 400-500 feet wide around bridges, 2. Establishment of four (4) fuel breaks of approximately 100-200 feet around infrastructure.
