BC Hydro Clowholm

Date: 2003

EcoPlan provided facilitation and decision analysis support to the Clowhom Water Use Plan Consultative Committee, which came to a consensus agreement on a package of recommendations. The Clowhom Reservoir lies in a steep-sided valley at the head of Salmon Inlet and at the edge of the Tantalus Range, 32 km north of Sechelt, BC. The consultative process provided a forum for sharing information, promoting understanding of affected interests and perspectives, exploring alternative facility operation models, evaluating impacts and making clear choices about trade-offs using both technical information and participant values. The committee process delivered expected net benefits (or was neutral) for all interests.
