PROJECT: Griffith Park Wildfire
CLIENT: City Of Los Angeles
LOCATION: Los Angeles, California
WSRI, aided by the efforts of Erickson Air-Crane, Wildland Resources, and Sikorski Helicopter Services, provided erosion control services for over 500 acres of burned ground in Los Angeles’s Griffith Park. The project scope included the application of erosion control slurry, consisting of Terra Matrix and Bonded Fiber Matrix, to burn areas on slopes varying from 1:1 to 3:1. The slurry mixture that was used on the project was mixed and loaded on top of Mount Hollywood by a crew of 15 WSRI employees. The slurry was then applied to steep inaccessible burn areas using an Erickson Air-Crane S64-E model aircraft. WSRI was able to establish a helipad within the park boundaries that allowed the soil stabilization team to deliver over 2200 gallons of material to the burned land within minutes. The project was completed with 2.5 million gallons of material being applied in two weeks.
