The RDEK posted to their social media channels on Tuesday, Sept. 28 that smoke may be visible around the area of the Wasa Transfer Station as they burn their wood pile as part of their normal operations.

They added that a contractor will be present with a water truck and necessary equipment to monitor the burn closely and remain on site overnight.

Additionally, fuels management work is being conducted at the Kimberley Nature Park and residents can expect to see smoke from that area throughout the week of Sept. 27.
