IJC Invites Written Comment on
Duck Lake Order

The International Joint Commission (IJC) invites written comment on its Duck Lake Order of Approval governing the dykes surrounding Duck Lake, and the management of water levels inside Duck Lake, located on the Kootenay River at the north end of the Creston Valley.

In February 2003, the IJC announced that it would review its Order for Duck Lake after public concern had been raised over the effects of water levels management on bass, and a request was made to transfer the management of Duck Lake water levels to a more local level. The IJC held a formal public hearing in Creston, BC on September 11, 2003 on this issue.

In addition to the public hearing, the International Joint Commission invites written comment on its Duck Lake Order of Approval. Written comments may be sent to one of the addresses below for receipt by October 15, 2003. More information, including an information paper on Duck Lake , is available at http://www.ijc.org/
