Hazardous material cleanup underway

MENDOCINO NATIONAL FOREST, Calif. — Officials are temporarily closing three administrative sites on the Mendocino National Forest for hazardous material cleanup, according to Forest Order 08-22-07.

Cleanup operations are underway at High Glade lookout, Keller Place and Beaver Glade fire station.

Forest officials expect cleanup to be completed by Sept. 30.

The purpose of the closure is to protect the public and contractors during the cleanup operations.

Officials ask the public to avoid the project areas and to be cautious around heavy equipment on forest roads.

The High Glade lookout burned during the 2018 Ranch Fire. The Beaver Glade fire station and historic Keller Place cabin burned in the 2020 August Complex.

Exemptions to this order closure include:

• Any federal, state or local officer, or member of an organized rescue or firefighting force in the performance of an official duty.
• Persons with a Forest Service permit for use of roads, trails, or areas restricted by regulation or order, Form FS-7700-48, specifically exempting them from this order.
