Day, Month 0, 2023
Burning will start around X a.m. and should conclude by X p.m.
Controlled burns are part of Tampa Bay Water’s land management program and are prescribed to remove nuisance plant species, encourage the growth of native species and decrease wildfire severity by reducing the amount of flammable vegetation on-site.
Prescribed burns are only conducted when weather conditions allow, so burns are conducted intermittently by certified, experienced personnel. Efforts are made to ensure that smoke will not affect nearby roads. However, vehicle operators should exercise caution in case smoke does lead to reduced visibility on the area’s roadways.
Read the controlled burns winter-spring 2023 notice.
