Controlled burns on site November 30
Controlled burns will be held on the Argonne site on Thursday, Nov. 30, 2017, to promote the health of native plants, eliminate unwanted exotic plants and reduce the probability of wildfires.
Burns will take place along the southern and eastern edges of the Argonne site. Predicted wind conditions should send most of the smoke away from occupied areas of the laboratory. If conditions change, the burns will be cancelled.
Such burns are conducted only on days that meet certain weather criteria. The majority will be conducted under wind conditions that keep smoke away from occupied portions of the Argonne site.
Those who may be sensitive to smoke can sign up for email air quality notifications when burns are conducted.
