The SLRD has contracted BGC Engineering to undertake a detailed quantitative landslide hazard and risk assessment of the area in and around Jason Creek and Reid Road. In support of this project, you may see them conducting fieldwork in the area on July 20-22 and July 25-27, 2022. In cases where fieldwork is required on specific private properties, those property owners have been contacted and granted permission for access.
The key outcome of this project is to provide a comprehensive hazard and risk assessment, integrating all the main contributors to landslide, debris flood, and consequential flood risk in the Reid Road area using current best practices in landslide risk assessment. The project team will also deliver, for consideration, a range of possible mitigation options and broad cost estimates where applicable, including structural and any non-structural approaches. BGC Engineering will then present the results of this project to the community and government stakeholders as required.
