Board to audit forest licence near Kamloops

VICTORIA – The Forest Practices Board will examine forest licence A89984, held by Adams Lake, in the Thompson Rivers Natural Resource District, during the week of June 25, 2018.

Auditors will examine whether harvesting, roads, silviculture, fire protection and associated planning, carried out between June 1, 2016, and June 29, 2018, met the requirements of the Forest and Range Practices Act and the Wildfire Act.

The area of the audit is located on the north side of Adams Lake near Agate Bay, approximately 60 kilometres northeast of Kamloops.

Once the audit work is complete, a report will be prepared, and any party that may be adversely affected by the audit findings will have a chance to respond. The board’s final report and recommendations then will be released to the public and government.

The Forest Practices Board is B.C.’s independent watchdog for sound forest and range practices, reporting its findings and recommendations directly to the public and government. The board audits forest and range practices on public land, as well as appropriateness of government enforcement.
