Western Tom Green County
" Residents and landowners in Buffalo Heights, KNA subdivisions, and others in the FM 2288 area, please be advised that Kiewit's solar installation has hired a TDA licensed Commercial Burn Manager to oversee the safe execution of the continued burning of the woody debris being cleared for the solar installation on this private property. Many policy changes come with the addition of the Commercial Burn Manager, with increased buffering applied to any burn proximity to houses and where no burn days will occur unless the forecast is for wind directions which do not disturb your neighborhoods. We are sorry for any inconvenience or nuisance the smoke has caused previously and we are confident that working with NOAA, we can evacuate the smoke more safely. Fire is a Natural process and the optimum choice for removing biomass naturally. Conservation Fire Team 5123326375,
