Landslide Terrain & Risk Assessment for Existing Residential Development in West Quatsino

Landslide Terrain & Risk Assessment for Existing Residential Development in West Quatsino

On May 2, 2014, the Regional District of Mount Waddington was notified by Western Forest Products of a potential landslide terrain and evidence of past land slide activity in west Quatsino, an area containing existing residential development. Subsequently, the Regional District requested funding from Emergency Management BC (EMBC) to proceed with further landslide terrain assessment. Michael Cullen Geotechnical (MCG) was retained to complete a terrain stability assessment and qualitative risk assessment to existing buildings along three potential historic landslide routes, Little Creek, Green Creek and Aweisha Creek. On November 5, 2014, RDMW received the final geotechnical report assessing the level of risk that landslide terrain poses to existing development within the vicinity of the three areas in west Quatsino. All three landslides subject to this investigation occurred in November of 1989.

 

The Regional District of Mount Waddington will be facilitating a public meeting in Quatsino in order to further discuss the results of this report with interested property owners and residents in the affected area, as well as discuss the necessary steps for moving forward with potential land use changes to the Quatsino Official Community Plan and Zoning Bylaw in order to implement the recommendations of the landslide assessment report.
