As a resident of Shady Hollow I try to keep up with whats happening in my neighborhood. Recently I got a letter telling those of us in Shady Hollow and the families just south of us in Southland Oaks about an upcoming prescribed burn in our area. The Water Quality Protection Lands Program is going to set some fires along MOPAC and Upper Bear Creek. The burn will be managed by the US Fish and Wildlife Service, The Nature Conservancy and Austin's Water Utility's Wildlife Division. The fire is to help restore this land to grasslands and savannas. These are the most effective type of land for protecting the water quality and quantity that feeds into Barton Springs portion of the Edwards Aquifer.
The exact date is not set due to weather conditions. In order to do the burn as safely as possible the weather conditions must be favorable. They can't start the burn if its too windy as sparks might get out of the containment area. There will be a notice on the nightly news at least 24 hours before the fire is set. The prescribed burn should be complete in 24-48 hours. The smoke impact is supossed to be minimal, but you may wish to remain indoors on the day the burn occurs. If you live in the neighborhood and have health problems that may be agrivated by smoke, please stay inside or go stay with a friend during the duration of the burn.
If you have additional questions about the prescribed burn you should go to the website: wwwcityofaustin.org/water/wildland.
The exact burn location is MOPAC and Upper Bear Creek, about 1.25 miles southwest of Slaughter & Brodie Lane. Please see attached map for detail.
