in 1991, Burrard Inlet Environmental Action Program (BIEAP) and
its partners coordinate
a joint action program to improve and protect the environmental
quality of Burrard Inlet. Geographically, BIEAP encompasses the
marine foreshore and tidal waters east of a line between Point Atkinson
and Point Grey, including False Creek, Port Moody Arm and Indian
2006-2007, the BIEAP Plan Implementation Committee continues to work
on a risk management approach to monitoring environmental quality
in the Inlet. Indicators
are being selected to monitor key ecosystem risks in the
Inlet. The approach builds on work done in 2004 to identify environmental
indicators to measure the environmental quality of Burrard Inlet,
and on a water quality workshop held by BIEAP in December 2004.
Other projects relate to cumulative effects, and tracking the implementation
of the Consolidated Environmental Management Plan (CEMP) for Burrard
Inlet, with an updated tracking report to be completed by fall 2006.
