TUCSON, AZ (KOLD News 13) - The annual controlled burn at Sweetwater Wetlands was set for Monday, March 4.

The wetlands and parking lots at 2511 W. Sweetwater Drive will be closed to the public all day, but the facility will reopen Tuesday, March 5.

More information about the wetlands and the burn can be found on the city’s web page about the Sweetwater Wetlands.

These controlled burns usually result in a column of smoke over the west-side that is easily seen from all over Tucson.

Tucson Water and the Tucson Fire Department conduct a controlled burn every March to remove dead and thatched bulrush and cattail to improve conditions for spring growth.
