Gravel plan proceeds

The Regional District of Central Okanagan board has received an update on the aggregate supply project

Long-term gravel needs are still being investigated in areas like Lake Country and the North Westside.

The Regional District of Central Okanagan board has received an update on the aggregate supply and demand study project.

A contract has recently been awarded to EBA Consultants, which will review and update the study originally adopted in 2000.

The goal of the update is to predict the supply and demand for aggregate materials in the RDCO over the next 100 years while providing an analysis of potential production constraints related to land uses.

It’s also expected that a site suitability assessment checklist will be developed that can be used to evaluate potential aggregate sites.
