People will have a chance to find out more about the steps Catalyst Paper is taking to ensure big problems can be avoided if severe drought conditions return next year and beyond.

Lake Cowichan mayor Ross Forrest says there will be a meeting taking place on Thursday, November 5th, at 6pm at the Centennial Hall.

Forrest says Cowichan Lake and the Cowichan River are once again healthy heading into the rainy season, so the weir will be shut down.

He says, however, the “proactive” application is being made because all signs point to another drought next summer.
