     10                <span class="Bold">SANTA FE, NM - April 10, 2017</span> - Fire managers on the Santa Fe National
     11                Forest (SFNF) are planning a prescribed burn in the Santa Fe Watershed on April 11.  Hand and
     12                aerial ignitions are planned for the 340-acre treatment area, located approximately three miles
     13                east of the City of Santa Fe between the Nichols and McClure Reservoirs. Due to the Watershed's
     14                proximity to the city, a smoke column from the prescribed burn will be visible throughout the area.

     16                Unusual wind patterns for the spring are expected to push the smoke north of Santa Fe toward Chimayo,
     17                Truchas, Peñasco and Dixon the afternoon of April 11, 2017. Light smoke may be seen in Española and
     18                as far north as Taos in the evening, but is expected to clear by midnight. Predicted moisture and high
     19                humidity Tuesday night should help reduce smoke production overnight with minimal impacts in the
     20                Santa Fe metro area Wednesday morning and clearing the air prior to the Good Friday pilgrimage to Chimayo.
