Water down wildfire ash?
Should I put on a sprinkler to wet the wildfire ash? Will this keep it from becoming airborne? thank you,
Multnomah County Oregon
Thank you for your question. Although we think we know the source of ash now covering our area, there are many sources of particulates within the ash. Here is a guide for safe behavior to deal with it until the rains arrive: https://www.azdhs.gov/documents/preparedness/epidemiology-disease-control/extreme-weather/wildfires/safe-tips-on-wildfire-ash-cleanup.pdf Good luck, and stay safe!
