TWIN FALLS CITY: Controlled Burn At Canyon Rim Ponds (April 6)
TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KLIX)-People may notice smoke this week as crews plan to burn vegetation along sediment ponds in the northeast part of Twin Falls this week. The City of Twin Falls said city workers will start burning at the ponds near Meadow Ridge Circle and the Canyon Rim Trail near Shoshone Falls starting April 6, if the weather allows. The burning will happen between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. The burning will get rid of excess vegetation that grows around the sediment ponds. " Sediment ponds allow sediment and organic material to separate from the water before it is released into the river. The process helps to significantly reduce the City of Twin Falls’ impact on the Snake River ecosystem," said the city.
