Squamish-Lillooet Regional District Geohazard Risk Prioritization Report

Geohazard Risk Prioritization

The Squamish-Lillooet Regional District (SLRD) Board has recently received the SLRD Geohazard Risk Prioritization Report.

The report provides a geohazard overview of the regional district, and will be used to inform future risk management planning.

The report identifies and prioritizes several geohazard risks, specifically flood, steep creek, and non-eruptive volcanic hazards (collectively referred to as geohazards) that could impact people, property and critical infrastructure in the region.

Commissioned by the SLRD and funded by Emergency Management BC and Public Safety Canada through the National Disaster Mitigation Fund, the report was completed by BGC Engineering Inc. and covers all land within the geographical boundaries of the SLRD, including First Nations lands, the SLRD’s four member municipalities (District of Squamish, Resort Municipality of Whistler, Village of Pemberton and District of Lillooet), and the SLRD’s four electoral areas (A, B, C, and D).

It is a collective geohazards picture of the entire region that can be used to inform future coordinated disaster risk reduction and resilience initiatives and also includes consideration of the future effects of climate change.
