Gardom Lake Management Plan

About the Planning Process

The Columbia Shuswap Regional District (CSRD) supported the development of a management plan for Gardom Lake for the benefit of area residents and visitors, now and in the future.

The CSRD retained the Fraser Basin Council to coordinate and facilitate a collaborative planning process and to develop a plan. The planning process was completed in May 2015 and, following review by the CSRD, the final version of the plan is now posted: Gardom Lake Management Plan (Final).

The plan includes a vision, goals, short and long-term objectives, and measurable actions for the management of Gardom Lake. It is advisory to the CSRD and other agencies that may have regulatory or other responsibilities for the lake.
