Examples of post-fire damage and Rehab efforts that mitigate that damage

 
Buckskin Wash, in the middle of the Heber-Overgaard, Arizona community. This “dry” wash is seeing the first run-off from watersheds within the Rodeo-Chediski Fire as the Southwest monsoon rains began to arrive before emergency rehabilitation work was completed. The black gooey runoff is covering a street and measures 50 feet wide and 6-10 feet deep. Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest, Arizona.
 
Rehabilitation work in an area burned by the Rodeo-Chediski Fire. Volunteers completed the work by spreading straw to protect grass seed aimed at reducing erosion from the Monsoon rains. Approximately 175 volunteers covered 180 acres of seeded area with in a four-hour period. Rehabilitation work mitigates the environmental degradation caused by heavy rains. Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest, Arizona.
