CHICO, Calif. - Action News Now's Linda Watkins-Bennett interviewed Cal OES Deputy Director Eric Lamoureaux about the toxic debris removal plan for the Camp Fire.

Lamoureaux talked about the process and what residents in areas affected can expect. 

A few key takeaways: 

  • Community meetings are an important opportunity to communicate information with the public and answer questions

  • Residents should be careful when repopulating areas, as there is still a lot of contaminated material 

  • Federal, state and local governments have agreed to pay for the process, however, they will be collecting money from insurance policies that specifically deal with debris removal 

  • Right-of-entry forms are important to fill out for residents wanting to be involved in the debris removal process 

  • The potential government shutdown will not affect the debris removal process
