The Regional District of Fraser-Fort George is about to undertake a hazard assessment in the region.

According to the District, the million-dollar study will happen in two phases – the first phase will assess flood and steep creek geohazards in the area and their susceptibility to climate change, the second will map those hazards.

The District said in a release “The review will provide the Regional District and its partners with a better understanding of the natural hazards in the region and what, if anything, can be done to mitigate those risks and better support emergency event response. It will also provide more information when considering land use planning, building inspection, emergency management and climate change policy.”

Funding for the project came from the Union of BC Municipalities’ Disaster Risk Reduction-Climate Adaptation program.
