About Us

About the Kootenay Lake Partnership

The Kootenay Lake Partnership was formed in 2010 as a multi-agency initiative to support management approaches for a productive and healthy Kootenay Lake ecosystem.

About the Kootenay Lake Shoreline Guidance Document

The Kootenay Lake Shoreline Guidance Document is a result of a comprehensive Sensitive Habitat Inventory Mapping project that involved an inventory and assessment of ecological, archaeological and Ktunaxa cultural values along the shoreline of Kootenay Lake. The resulting Shoreline Guidance Document directs shoreline development such as docks, retaining walls, or dredging activities in an effort to protect high value shoreline habitats.

For information about the public workshops planned for summer 2017, see Partnership News & Updates below.

About the Slocan Lake Shoreline Guidance Document

A similar project was completed for Slocan Lake in 2014, however, the Slocan Lake Sensitive Habitat Inventory Mapping project reflects ecological values only. The resulting Shoreline Guidance Document directs shoreline development such as docks, retaining walls, or dredging activities in an effort to protect high value shoreline habitats.
