On Thursday, May 3rd, following a May 2nd Open House in Sechelt, BC Parks posted important background and legislative information around Tetrahedron Provincial Park and its Park Management Plan.
This represents a welcome addition to the public discourse, and contains much of the information required to have a rational and informed discussion with regards to the Park Redesignation options being proposed as part of the SCRD’s application to access more Chapman Lake water in times of need.
The information includes a link to a Park Options Comment form. The period for Public Comment period closes May 31st.
I would particularly recommend downloading and reading the Public Information Paper (PDF) found towards the bottom of BC Parks’ webpage:
For people looking to better understand how the Chapman Lake Expansion Project fits in with the other SCRD Water Projects, there are significant resources both here http://www.scrd.ca/Water and further down this page.
If you would like to talk to an SCRD Director about the topic, I am at the Gumboot Cafe nearly every Saturday morning between 10-12.
