News Release
Post-fire erosion threat reports released - 01/11/21

SALEM, Ore. – On Monday, January 11, Oregon state agencies and federal partners released erosion threat reports related to the September 2020 wildfires.

The Erosion Threats Assessment and Reduction Team (ETART) is a multi-jurisdictional and multi-agency team, led by FEMA and the state of Oregon, charged with assessment of potential erosion risks and to provide control treatment recommendations. This group of subject matter experts coordinated with federal, state and local fire response teams as an early statewide recovery action.

This ETART team identifies risks and threats such as soil erosion, flooding potential, hazard trees and ecological impacts associated with each fire. Local and state jurisdictions will evaluate the findings through the filters of need, feasibility and cost, to prioritize recovery projects and inform funding decisions.

ETART summaries and full reports for the Beachie Creek, Archie, Holiday Farm and Riverside fires are available online at https://wildfire.oregon.gov/NCrecovery.

A virtual media availability is planned for later this week; a media advisory is pending with additional information. For details, please email Jo Niehaus, ETART public information officer, at jo.niehaus@oregon.gov.

For more information about wildfire recovery, please reach out to the Wildfire Recovery Information Center at e.info@oregon.gov">fire.info@oregon.gov. For specific questions about the ETART reports, please email esetart@fema.dhs.gov">2020wildfiresetart@fema.dhs.gov.
