Moorage of M.V. Fintry off Kickininee Provincial Park

Just a heads-up: The RDOS has been asked to comment on a proposal for the temporary moorage of the Fintry Queen in Okanagan Lake off Area F.

  1. The proposed management plan can be found here
  2. RDOS staff report to Area F APC

 

The RDOS is not the decision maker, the Province of BC is.  Howerver, like the PIB, we may be considered stakeholders and are being asked to comment.  Please let me know (or leave a comment below) if you have any strong views one way or another on this proposal.

 

 

Cattle guard is gone

The Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure removed the Bartlett cattle guard today.  We asked on behalf of some residents but it was MoTI's decision.

The cattle guard was completely unnecessary due to the PIB's new fence configuration and cattle guard adjacent to the Westhills Aggregates entrance (see previous posting).  Ours was a cattle guard with no fence attached to it. It did absolutely zero to stop the horses.  Instead it was just a nuisance for motorists, cyclists, and nearby residents alike.

On the positive side, it served as a pretty effective speed bump and waker-upper (especially on frosty mornings if you hit it while still cornering).  Hopefully folks will continue to moderate their speed as they approach the intersection with Lambert.

October 2016 Remediation on the KVR

The following update is from Mark Woods, RDOS Community Services Manager, regarding remediation work on the KVR trail:

The work taking place on the former KVR right of is part of the land transfer negotiated settlement between the PIB and CP Rail.

Westhills Aggregate won the bid through CP Rail to undertake remediation work in three sections of the KVR. The remediation work includes removing contaminated soils from the lands which are then hauled to the Campbell Mountain Landfill for proper disposal. All costs are covered by CP Rail. I checked with our Landfill staff and the material will be used as cover.
