The Department of Energy (DOE) proposes to perform firebreak maintenance in selected areas of the Hanford Site during calendar year 2012 with limited use of physical, chemical, and prescribed burning methods. Prescribed burning will be performed by the Hanford Fire Department under approved burn plans and permits; and only in previously disturbed infrastructure areas. Similarly, Mission Support Contractor Biological Controls will perform ground-based physical (e .g., manual and mechanical) and chemical (e .g., herbicide) methods; and only in previously disturbed infrastructure areas.
