Teck lands OPENED effective immediately-updated
Access to Teck Private Lands Re-opened
As part of Teck’s ongoing commitment to safety and in alignment with the Province of British Columbia’s decision to re-open backcountry access, public access to all Teck’s private land holdings in the Elk Valley area are re-opened, effective immediately.
In the interest of public safety and to help reduce the potential for human-caused wildfire:
· Vehicular access is restricted to highway licensed vehicle use on established road surfaces only.
· Parking or traveling in grassy areas or areas where combustible materials are present is restricted.
· The operation of any off-road vehicle for recreational purposes is prohibited on Teck’s private land holdings in the Elk Valley until further notice.
· Campfires (as defined in the Wildfire Regulation: www.gov.bc.ca/wildfirelegislation) or the burning of waste or other materials is prohibited on Teck’s private land holdings in the Elk Valley until further notice.
As part of Teck’s ongoing commitment to safety, public access to all Teck’s private land holdings in the Elk Valley area is closed effective immediately.
This step is being taken to help prevent human-caused wildfires, to protect public safety and is aligned with the provincial government’s announcement to restrict public access on Crown land in the area. It is expected that the closure will be in place until the fire hazard ratings are reduced in the region.
Teck thanks the public for their cooperation and will provide further updates as required.
