Slash Burns

The Crystal Lakes Road & Recreation Association bans all slash burns on properties within the Association. This policy has the full support of the Crystal Lakes Fire Protection District.  If you are a member of the Crystal Lakes Road & Recreation Association, you may not burn slash on your property.


Properties in the district which are not part of the Road & Recreation Association may burn slash only if they request and receive a Larimer County Open Burn Permit under the following district regulations:

Burning without a permit is punishable by Larimer County with fines of up to $10,000 per day, plus any fines and penalties assessed by the Crystal Lakes Road & Recreation Association (if burns take place inside the R&R Association).



Warning Sirens

For the safety of the community, Crystal Lakes Associations has evacuations sirens posted throughout the Association. The evacuation siren in case of failure of the dam is located near the Wapiti Mailsheds to cover the floodplain area and sounds like this whoop sound:

Property owners in the floodplain should evacuate immediately if they hear this siren; all other property owners should remain on their lots, to keep the roads clear for those evacuating the floodplain. Sirens in ALL parts of the association will sound the fire evacuation siren if a wildfire threatens the community -- it sounds like this alert sound:

ALL property owners should evacuate IMMEDIATELY if they hear this siren. Emergency personnel will be on hand to help direct evacuating property owners out of the area.
