Board to audit forestry activities near Mt. Currie

VICTORIA – The Forest Practices Board will examine the activities of Lil’wat Forestry Ventures and Lil’wat Construction Enterprises on forest licences A83925 and A82250, during the week of Sept. 2, 2014.

The audit will examine timber harvesting, silviculture, protection, road construction, maintenance and deactivation, as well as operational planning for compliance with forest practices legislation.

The companies’ forestry activities are near Mt. Currie, Birken and Lillooet Lake, in the Sea to Sky resource district.

Once the audit work is completed, 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.
