Watershed council seeks input

The Shuswap Lake Integrated Planning Process (SLIPP) three-year pilot program is now completed and a new watershed organization is being developed to co-ordinate water quality and safety in the watershed.

The development is being spearheaded by the newly established Shuswap Watershed Council (SWC), which includes elected leaders from Shuswap communities, regional districts, First Nations, B.C. government agencies, water quality organizations, and the Fraser Basin Council.

SWC partners agree it is very important that the public provide input into this watershed organization.

Shuswap Water Team directors encourage all watershed residents to attend one of the seven public open house/feedback sessions to learn what has been accomplished, what is proposed, and to provide input.

SWAT believes affirmative and active involvement by the public is essential to protect the watershed water quality now and for the future.

The locations and dates are:

• Wednesday, July 16 Salmon Arm – Intermissions Restaurant at the Shaw Centre, 2600 10th Ave. NE

• Monday, July 21 North Shuswap – Scotch Creek Community Hall, 3852 Squilax-Anglemont Rd.

• Wednesday, July 23 Sorrento/South Shuswap – Sorrento Memorial Hall 1150 Passchendaele Rd.

• Monday, July 28 Enderby/Upper Shuswap – Enderby Drill Hall, 208 George St.

The open house takes place from 3:30 to 7:30 p.m. A drop-in poster presentation takes place from 3:30 to 6 p.m. From 6 to 7:30 p.m. there is an oral presentation and question and answer period.
