 The Colliery Dams Technical Committee is pleased to provide the following public progress update, also available on the City of Nanaimo website. All of the Committee members remain focused on supporting the work that needs to be done to develop a remediation plan for the dams that will meet their collective objectives.

The Technical Committee was struck on October 21 2013 by the City of Nanaimo, with a mandate to develop remediation options to present to the City of Nanaimo and Snuneymuxw First Nation for consideration before a final decision is made.  Mayor John Ruttan says: “I’m very pleased to hear that the Technical Committee is making substantial progress on the work that has to be done, and working collaboratively together on developing options for remediation of the Colliery Dams. We have a good short-term emergency plan in place in the meantime, and I’m looking forward to seeing the options and making progress very soon on a permanent solution.”
