Residents are advised that open burning of forestry slash piles in these areas of Cumberland will take place in October:
• Bevan Road area;
• Whyte’s Bay area;
• South of Cumberland toward Allen Lake.
The Village is working closely with Hancock Forest Management to help reduce the impact of the fires and smoke on Cumberland residents. Burning will only take place if weather conditions and the BC Venting Index are suitable.
The burning will dispose of slash debris from forestry operations and help reduce risk of forest fire during the hot summer months.
Please call the Village Fire Department at 250-336-2531 for more information on open burning in the Village.
