February 4, 2021 - British Columbia, Canada

In a forestry audit north of Clearwater, the BC Forest Practices Board found a significant non-compliance related to road maintenance on the Oliver Creek forest service road. Oliver Creek flows into the Adams River which is one of the most important sockeye salmon breeding areas in North America. The timber sale licensee allegedly failed to ensure the road was safe for industrial users - a non-compliance with section 79 (6) of the Forest Planning and Practices Regulation of British Colombia.
