Road Maintenance and Landslides at Bernard Creek, on Kootenay Lake

In November 2019, the Board received a complaint about damage to a licensed waterworks on Bernard Creek,  approximately 30 kilometres north of Riondel in the West Kootenays. A resident of a private campground alleged that maintenance work on the Bernard Creek Forest Service Road, completed by the Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development (FLNRORD), caused landslides that damaged licensed waterworks and caused slope instability. The Board considered whether road maintenance completed by FLNRORD in 2015 complied with the Forest and Range Practices Act.
