Land impacted by the suppression of the Torkelsen wildfire in 2018, including fireguards constructed to help slow the fire’s spread, has been rehabilitated, according to the province.

The rehabilitation project included:

* removing woody debris from streams;

* moving vegetation that was cleared from fireguard areas back into those areas;

* sowing grass seed to help prevent soil erosion; and

* managing water flows on the landscape.
