The key recommendation of the 2018 Water Use Plan for Cowichan Lake and Cowichan River is to construct a new weir with an increase of 70 cm of elevation above the existing weir. In July 2021, the final design of the new weir was completed. A condition of the key recommendation is that an assessment be done of the potential impacts to the Cowichan Lake shoreline due to storing water earlier and at a higher level than has been done historically. The Property View Tool helps to visualize the various lake elevation information at a property level. It is a Geographic Information System (GIS) online tool in which we can compare the information gathered to date on top of aerial photography.
