Water Pump for Chapman Lake Raises Concerns
The Sunshine Coast Conservation Association and the Tetrahedron Alliance are concerned that potential alterations to the Chapman Lake water storage system will have serious deleterious impacts on the Tetrahedron Park ecosystem, yet will not solve the Coast's summer water supply problems.
The SCCA has submitted a Backgrounder on Chapman Lake water storage management and is asking members to attend the next meeting of the Sunshine Coast Regional District's Infrastructure Services Committee on Thursday, September 4 at 1:30 pm. (see agenda)
We wish to explore with the SCRD directors more effective alternative means of fixing our water supply system rather than installing either floating pumps, siphons, tunnels, dredging or other changes that would have the effect of drawing down Chapman Lake a further 10 feet and threatening the surrounding plant structures.

SCCA files 50 Wildlife Habitat Area nominations
The SCCA has formally nominated 50 areas of Marbled Murrelet nesting habitat in the Sunshine Coast Forest District (SCFD) for Wildlife Habitat Area (WHA) designation.
The Marbled Murrelet is a small seabird that nests on mossy branches of old growth forests. Its original range extended from California to Alaska. These WHA nominations represent a small fraction of the birds’ nesting habitat that is unprotected and at risk.
