Nicola Watershed Planning Process

New Watershed Plan Ahead

In July 2015 the multi-interest Nicola Lake Steering Committee, which was overseeing implementation of the Nicola Lake Action Plan, decided that it should expand its terms of reference to address issues affecting the whole of the Nicola watershed.

A new Nicola Steering Committee will develop a Nicola Watershed Plan. The new plan will draw on the Nicola Lake Action Plan and include changes that reflect an expanded scope.

The Thompson-Nicola Regional District is providing funding for this core planning work, and the Steering Committee will seek additional funding for specific work projects. The Fraser Basin Council is serving the Committee as program manager.

Nicola Steering Committee

The terms of reference for the newly restructured Nicola Steering Committee, including the Committee’s role, composition and structure, will be finalized soon.

About the Fraser Basin Council

The Fraser Basin Council (FBC) is a charitable non-profit organization that brings people together to advance sustainability in the Fraser River Basin and across BC. Established in 1997, FBC is a collaboration of four orders of government (federal, provincial, local and First Nations) along with those from the private sector and civil society. We work with people in multiple sectors, helping them find collaborative solutions to today’s issues through a commitment to the social, economic and environmental dimensions of sustainability. Our focus is on healthy water and watersheds, action on climate change and air quality and strong, resilient communities and regions.
