Due to the nature of the surrounding landscape, the Lake Errock community has been periodically subjected to flooding and its associated hazards. To protect both people and buildings, guidelines for elevating structures above ground level, which would allow water and debris to flow around buildings, were introduced by Thurber Engineering. Although these guidelines were in place, individual property owners were still required to hire, at their own cost, a geotechnical engineer to assess their specific property for building permit approvals.
In order to alleviate this costly and time-consuming process, the FVRD contracted Cordilleran Geoscience to prepare a report that outlines building elevation requirements and allows the FVRD to approve residential building permits without the need for site-specific geotechnical reports in most of Lake Errock under the following conditions:
