Gardom Lake Issues for Consideration
The Gardom Lake Management planning process, which is now complete, explored a number of concerns and issues relating to the lake.
Here are some of the issues for exploration that came to the attention of the Columbia Shuswap Regional District or other agencies with responsibilities for the lake:
- Water Quality (e.g., sediment, nutrient levels, pollution, septic systems, sanitation practices)
- Water Quantity (e.g., water withdrawals, lake levels)
- Fish & Wildlife (e.g., bird habitat, fish habitat, stocking and populations, fishing regulations, species at risk)
- Native/non-native terrestrial and aquatic plant species
- Recreation (e.g., noise impacts from boats, firearms and fireworks)
- Foreshore changes by residents and visitors (e.g., modifications, wood removal)
- Lake access (e.g, parking, infrastructure, congestion)
- Facilities (e.g., washrooms, garbage, maintenance)
- Enforcement of laws or bylaws.
Input from agencies, interested groups and members of the public was used to identify and prioritize issues in the planning process. For more information, see: Public Participation.
