- Description of Project:
Sukut entered into a joint venture with Pacific States Environmental Contractors and P31 Enterprises (PSP JV) to begin the Northern Branch wildfire cleanups located in Butte, Lassen, Nevada, Plumas, Shasta, Del Norte, Siskiyou, Trinity, and Yuba Counties. Wildfires swept through these counties in late 2020 and PSP JV was tasked with fire debris removal and hazard tree removal. PSP JV removed and safely disposed of or recycled approximately 380,000 tons of metal, concrete, ash, and contaminated soil. Additionally, 7,000 burnt vehicles were removed and recycled along with 68,000 hazard trees that were removed and sent to sawmills and biomass facilities. Sukut cleared a total of 2,100 parcels of fire debris and hazard trees. These efforts employed over 800 laborers, operators, truckers, and other types of field staff.
