Water Quality in the East Blackpool Watersheds
Residents in the East Blackpool area near Clearwater were concerned that forestry activities above their properties would affect their domestic water supply. The properties are on a bench of land above the North Thompson River. The East Blackpool area contains several small separate drainages, including Lone Creek, Modrall Creek, Rennie Creek, Bester Creek, McCarthy Creek, and Axel Creek. The area falls under the Kamloops Land Resource Management Plan (LRMP) that was approved by cabinet in 1995 and declared a higher level plan in 1996.
