Tsunami Debris Management Plan

Consultations continue on Phase 2 of the Tsunami Debris Management Plan, with the final plan scheduled for release in early January.

Phase 2 outlines disposal options for tsunamiā€related debris, including identifying and addressing waste management issues; and focuses on how the Province will work with coastal communicates to assess and determine specific challenges associated with the collection, removal, and landfilling of tsunami debris.

UBCM continues to participate on the Tsunami Debris Coordinating Committee, a joint committee chaired by senior representatives from the provincial and federal governments. Phase 1 was released in September 2012, and established protocols on how to deal with tsunami debris, identified roles and responsibilities of government and partner agencies, and provided an assessment of risks relating to tsunami debris (http://www.env.gov.bc.ca/epd/tsunami-debris/index.htm) .
