The anticipated effects of climate change and sea level rise are triggering a review of some shoreline projects and long-term infrastructure replacement planning in Campbell River.

Findings of a recently-completed detailed study of the potential effects of sea level rise at Ostler Park, where the shoreline elevation is relatively low, indicate that a modified design would be required to accommodate severe winter storms.

A key element in the Ostler Park redevelopment plan was a pocket beach, which would connect people to the water and protect the shoreline from erosion by slowing down the cumulative effect of sea level rise and the power of severe winter storms. While it originally looked like this could be achieved with minimal change to the existing footprint of the park, a detailed study reveals that, due to the park’s relatively low elevation, we would need to build a natural beach that cuts farther into the park than originally planned. A revised design plan is currently underway.
