The public is invited to the first annual Elk Valley Environmental Monitoring Committee (EMC) open house to learn more about the water quality monitoring and management work being undertaken in the Elk Valley under Teck’s Environmental Management Act permit and the Elk Valley Water Quality Plan. The open house is an opportunity to ask questions of EMC members and Teck representatives about water quality and mining in the region, and the work conducted by the EMC over the past year.
The EMC was created as a requirement of the Environmental Management Act permit for Teck’s steelmaking coal operations in the Elk Valley. It is an independent body with representation from the Government of BC, Ktunaxa Nation Council, Teck, and a third-party scientific expert. The EMC provides technical and traditional knowledge input and advice on environmental monitoring in the Elk Valley.
