A controlled burn is scheduled to take place Tuesday March 22, at Terrace View Pond, if favorable weather conditions continue.

The Village of Lombard’s Public Works Department, in conjunction with ENCAP, Inc. of DeKalb, will be performing a controlled burn of the perimeter wetland surrounding Terrace View Pond. The Lombard Park District has also contracted ENCAP to conduct a controlled burn on the vegetation located on the south side of Greenfield Avenue across from Terrace View Pond.

This burn is part of the Village's commitment to the health and maintenance of Terrace View Pond. Controlled burns are a natural event for plant species that are native to the area, and will help to control invasive plant species. The purpose of a burn is to control non-native vegetation by mimicking natural fires. The burn will leave behind native plants that are able to survive such fire events. These native plants will create a balanced ecosystem for the pond. This burn is part of an ongoing partnership between the Village of Lombard and the Lombard Park District to ensure the long term success of the pond ’s ecological health and its function as a storm water management pond.

Additional information about habitat restoration can be found at dupageforest.com. An open burn permit has been obtained from the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency. The burn plan has also been reviewed and approved by the Lombard Fire Department. ENCAP, and Village employees are trained in controlled burn tactics and are equipped with fire-fighting tools and safety equipment.

Notice will also be posted on the Village of Lombard website, and social media accounts. Notice will also be given to School District 44, the Lombard Park District and the Fire and Police Departments.
