    Your Fishing License Dollars at Risk in Summerland

    Your Fishing License Dollars at Risk in Summerland

    After nearly 100 years BC's oldest fish hatchery is now at risk.

    Stocking approximately 300 lakes, the hatchery relies on its pristine water source for hatchery operations

    Shaughessy springs, the hatchery's groundwater source originates in Bristow valley.

    The city of Summerland is contemplating rezoning the valley from agriculture to high density housing for a 376 unit seniors’ village.

    The move to high density zoning has the potential to negatively affect Shaughnessy Springs due to groundwater contamination from run-off and water withdrawal for operations.

    Without clean water the hatchery simply won’t survive.

    Your fishing license dollars are what keeps this hatchery running.

    Shaughnessy Springs water must be maintained in an unimpaired state.

    Please attend the following sessions to get a better understanding of the issues
