Open house chance for public to weigh in on Bonsall Creek

NOTE: This story was edited to correct the date of the open house. It is Thursday, Nov. 27.

The Municipality of North Cowichan is inviting the public to an open house, the first step in a consultation process on the development of the Bonsall Creek Watershed Management Plan.

The session, set for the Westholme School Society building, takes place Thursday, Nov. 27, from 5:30-8 p.m. "We are creating a plan in order to determine how we can best manage this important resource," explained Brian Green, manager of planning and sustainability. "That means figuring out how water moves through the Bonsall Creek watershed, and how it is impacted and used along the way. Residents, farmers, and recreational users, can make an important contribution to the plan by identifying issues, challenges and potential solutions."

Drainage and water use will be addressed. It is anticipated that the plan will take two years to complete.
