Ducks Unlimited is prepared with detailed engineering plans and full co-operation of the pro- vincial recreation and conser- vation department to do the re- quired work of establishing ideal nesting grounds for some 150 acres near and on Lake Elizabeth just outside south city limits. DU has budgeted S60.000 for the project. Half will be spent on the ac- tual nesting grounds. This will require inlet dyking of little Jimsmith Creek, the shallow lake's supply, for level control, to which upstream wa- ter rights-holders have agreed. The shallow bullrush acre- age will then be drained, is- lands and canals bulldozed, and water restored for quick na- tural rehabilitation of marsh Profile survey the past two years has shown variable shal- lows and maximum depth of eight feet but soft mud silt base unsuitable for islands.

Tile line now runs west in a straight right of way from Whisky Creek near Ram- part over rolling hills to Cran- brook, which has three major substations. B.C. Hydro's plan from Cran- bfook to Kimberley would hack out a new right-of-way, and the board points out it already has three different lines from Gran- brook to Kimberley for lesser voltage. HDEK suggests the addition- al power line should parallel one of these instead of chop- ping new bushland. Direct support in oppos- ing the plan will be sought from all East Kootenay mu- nicipalities on the grounds it violates the multiple land use principles supported by the Un- ion of B.C. .Municipalities and the department of lands. Practical support in the op- position will be solicited from L. T.

The other half of the will be spent on helping the city rechannel Jimsmith Creek from its outlet in the north shore, which bounds the city's Confederation Park. W hen civilization arrived here in the late 1890's Jim- smith Creek ran on what is now railway right-of-way and it has never taken kindly to its dis- location. The city is pledged to establish control two miles northward where it is ditched along the North Van Home ar- terial highway project for 1972. Upcreek work in South Van Home and through little Van Home close to the lake outlet will benefit. underground water problems of properties in this area are permanent. Wild fluctuations in lake le- vels through nesting season, and from year to year, have couracrd permanent nesting flocks, though small colonies of the various waterbirds, and lashings of muskrats have re- mained continuous while shore- birds and songbird settlements are prolific and hearty each spring and summer.
