Kamloops Airshed Management Plan

The City of Kamloops adopted an Airshed Management Plan in 2013.

There are seven key strategies:

  1. Encourage Alternative, Sustainable Methods of Transportation and Supportive Infrastructure
  2. Minimize Contaminant Emissions from Wood Burning Appliances with Proper Installation and Management
  3. Ensure that Open Burning is a Last Resort Approach and is Undertaken Correctly to Minimize Contaminant Emissions
  4. Limit Impact of Contaminant Emissions from Industrial, Commercial, and Institutional Sources
  5. Increase Local Government Role in Air Quality Preservation and Enhancement Through Land Use Planning, By-laws, and Programs
  6. Enhance Access to Air Quality Information and Increase Public Awareness
  7. Support Ongoing Air Quality Research to Protect and Improve Air Quality.

The City of Kamloops is working on moving forward on all these strategies. See the plan for more details.

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 throughout 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.
