On Thursday, the Village of Pemberton advised:
The Mount Currie Landslide Risk Assessment (“Assessment”) is now complete.
The Assessment, conducted by BGC Engineering Inc. (“BGC”), was conducted to determine landslide and associated flood risk from the north face of Mount Currie, including risk to life, buildings, critical facilities, business activities, power and communication lines.
The Assessment has confirmed areas of instability that could result in small rockfall events and rare, but large-scale rock slope failures.
Due to Mount Currie’s size and the number of source zones for rockfalls, the Assessment states that engineered mitigation options are not feasible.
As a result, BGC has recommended monitoring as the most practical and cost-effective approach to risk management. The Assessment also recommends that land use be restricted in part or all of the areas modeled for rock avalanches, as any increase in development density would increase the population at risk.
