Controlled burns on site March 22
Depending on weather conditions, prescribed burns may be held on site today in the 600 Area and south of the 200 Area.
The burns help to promote the health of native plants, eliminate unwanted exotic plants and reduce the probability of wildfires.
Burns are conducted only on days that meet certain weather criteria, including wind conditions that help keep smoke away from occupied portions of the Argonne site. If conditions change, the burns will be cancelled. Signs will be posted to alert motorist and pedestrians.
Those who may be sensitive to smoke can sign up for email air quality notifications when burns are conducted.
