Posted on May 14, 2018

Local, state and federal officials have announced that debris operations in all Northern California counties impacted by the October 2017 fires is nearly complete. As part of the completion process the last day to call the Wildfire Debris Information Line with new inquiries or issues is May 16, 2018.

The information line for debris removal operations began taking calls from survivors in November 2017. The last day to call the wildfire debris removal information line for Lake, Mendocino, Napa and Sonoma counties with new inquiries or issues is May 16, 2018. After that date the number will continue to be staffed from 8a.m.-7p.m. to provide follow-up information and closeout with homeowners already in the queue.

The Debris Removal Information Line number is 877-875-7681.

All government debris removal operations are expected to be concluded by May 31, 2018.

In response to the October 2017 wildfires, USACE received a debris removal/management mission from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in Sonoma, Lake, Mendocino, and Napa and counties. That mission is 99% complete. The mission included the removal of ash and debris from parcels in the four-county burn areas.

Since last year, USACE has cleared and returned more than 4,275 parcels to the counties or property owners to continue their recovery efforts. This monumental process included removing more than 2.2 million tons of debris.

The following e-mail addresses will continue to accept questions about debris removal:
