Ramp responsibilities as clear as?

Here is a response to a request for clarity about BC Hydro’s responsibilities in regards to the Arrow Lakes boat launch.

In response to a request for clarity about BC Hydro’s responsibilities in regards to the Arrow Lakes boat launch, the Comptroller of Water Rights office had this to say: “The requirement for boat ramp access for the Arrow Lakes Reservoir is the summer recreation period. In 2007 a water use plan was developed for the Columbia River system. The water use plan objective chosen for recreational access was to maintain higher reservoir elevations for the summer recreational period of May 24 to September 30, with lower elevations during that period being acceptable with the inclusion of ramp upgrades/extensions.”
