Tender awarded to Whistler’s Munster Construction; fabrication of aluminum dock sections underway
Work has begun on the fabrication of two new metal docks for Anderson Lake in D’Arcy, in Electoral Area C, after the Squamish-Lillooet Regional District (SLRD) Board awarded the contract for installing new docks and a boat ramp at its January 25, 2017 meeting. It is hoped that the new docks and boat ramp will be in place in time for the May 24 long weekend, the unofficial kick-off to summer.
Arctic outflows can be good for lakes, especially if you're sharpening your skates in anticipation of a session of pond hockey. Unfortunately, the recent spate of cold windy weather took a toll on the aging dock on the east side of Anderson Lake, blowing it sideways until the ramp and float broke.
The east side dock is now closed until further notice. Please do not attempt to use it.
