Bid Recipient: Graham County Board of Supervisors

Notice is hereby given that the Board of Supervisors of Graham County will receive sealed bids for a Gila River Fire Mitigation Project 2, Bid # 20/21-08.

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 fire suppression resources. There are two types of treatment areas: 1. Seven (7) fire breaks of approximately 400-500 feet wide across the width of the river, 2. Four (4) defensible spaces at critical infrastructure approximately 100-200 feet wide around infrastructure. This will be accomplished by grubbing target species (Tamarisk commonly Salt Cedar) and masticating debris on site.
