Eagle Creek Pine Salvage

The Blewett Watershed Committee filed a complaint to the Board about the Kootenay Lake Forest District’s request for Atco Wood Products Ltd. to log MPB infested pine trees in its operating areas, including the Eagle Creek drainage area. The complainant believes the proposed level of logging would remove too much of the forest and would negatively impact the watershed, compromising the complainant’s ability to meet Canadian drinking water standards.
