MORENO VALLEY, Calif - Effective immediately the Bureau of Land Management has lifted its fire prevention closure for public land access in and near Whitewater Canyon in Riverside County.

This action terminates a Whitewater Fire Prevention order issued on June 1, 2017, by the BLM Palm Springs-South Coast Field Office. A copy of the termination order can be viewed at https://www.blm.gov/sites/blm.gov/files/programs-public_safety_and_fire-fire_and_aviation-california-whitewater_preserve.pdf.

Although the fire prevention closure order is no longer necessary, Stage III fire restrictions still remain in effect for the Whitewater area. For a complete list of those restrictions, visit: https://www.blm.gov/programs/public-safety-and-fire/fire-and-aviation/regional-info/california/fire-restrictions.

The BLM is committed to keeping public landscapes healthy and productive. For further information, contact California Desert District Office 951-697-5200, or the Palm Springs-South Coast Field Office at 760-833-7100.
