Fraser Basin Council

2012 - Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of BC

The British Columbia Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations commissioned the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of BC (APEGBC) to develop these professional practice guidelines for professional engineers, professional geoscientists and APEGBC licensees in carrying out flood assessments. The guidelines identify the circumstances in which risk assessments are appropriate and emphasize the need to consider climate change and land use changes in such assessments. APEGBC adopted the guidelines in October 2012.
