Road Failures on Vedder Mountain in the Chilliwack Forest District

On December 28, 2001, a small landslide originated in the fill slope of the Vedder Mountain Forest Service Road. Chilliwack Forest District staff undertook measures to temporarily maintain the road. On January 9, 2002, another landslide occurred at the same site. Both times, fill-slope material deposited into a regenerating cutblock immediately below the road. The road failed in another spot on January 9, 2002, depositing a small amount of material into a stream. On July 3, 2002, the Valhalla Wilderness Society complained to the Forest Practices Board that the district had failed to adequately maintain that forest service road.
