Riparian Areas Assessments

Riparian Areas Assessments


 

Valhalla Environmental Consulting provides Riparian Areas Regulation (RAR) assessment services for Okanagan and interior BC clients applying for development permits.

Enacted under the Provincial Fish Protection Act, the Riparian Areas Regulation (RAR) specifies methods required to determine development setback distances from watercourses/bodies that contain fish or are directly connected to fish bearing waters. If your development activity occurs within 30 m of a stream or waterbody, one of our Qualified Environmental Professionals (QEPs) will help you: determine the required streamside setback, design your project to minimize riparian areas impact, identify potential mitigation or compensation measures, and engage local and regional government officials on your behalf.
