 O Connor Lake/Wentworth FSR’s – high water still reported as a concern around culverts on these roads. No washouts reported to date but use caution on these roads.

Continue to use caution while traveling any resource roads. Soil moisture conditions remain high and many FSR’s are still saturated. Both public and internal reports are still coming in regarding water concerns so please be extremely careful when traveling forest roads. If you come across a concern ensure your safety first, stay clear of the area, mark the location with some type of warning, record as much information as possible, take pictures and have an accurate and clear description of the location, maps are best, (GPS co-ordinates if possible).


Engineering

Forest roads are designed, constructed and maintained for a variety of uses including access for timber harvesting, recreation, grazing and forest protection for fire, insects and disease. There are more than 1500 kilometres of Forest Service roads, and 50 bridges, in our District. There are also more than 15,000 km of non-status roads. The Kamloops Timber Supply Area (LRMP) has an estimated 35,000 to 40,000 km of roads.
