Angora Fire Landslide Assessment

Blackburn Consulting completed a geologic assessment of the Angora Fire burn area located near the City of South Lake Tahoe. Our assessment included meeting with the evaluation team and development of methods to evaluate important portions of the fire area and still meet the project budget. Our assessment concentrated on the area south and west of the South Tahoe High School and the residential area along Gardner Street. Our scope included review of available fire area evaluation data developed by the USGS, USDA, and CGS, review of aerial photography of the site, site reconnaissance and mapping, and compilation and analyses of the data we obtained. A determination of the potential for landsliding and debris flows was made and recommendations provided.
