Chilliwack River Valley Ratepayers Association
Gravel is being extracted from a new open pit mine in Chilliwack. It is feared that runoff and silt from the mine will damage sensitive downstream fish habitat. The Chilliwack River Valley Ratepayers Association received an EDRF grant to participate in the Reconsideration hearing as proposed by the Chief Inspector of Mines. Their goal is to prevent further gravel extraction from the mine and protect downslope fish habitat.
