Kootenay Crossing Horse Facility Building Decommissioning and Site Rehabilitation

Parks Canada proposes to remove and decommission three structures that are no longer operationally viable, including: a horse barn, a tack shed, and a pump house located at Kootenay Crossing in Kootenay National Park. All materials being stored on site will also be removed. A second phase of this project may occur and will involve the rehabilitation of the area involving the re-contouring, reclamation and re-vegetation of the site

The project is located 43 kilometres (km) North of the intersection of Highway 93 and Highway 95 in the Village of Radium Hot Springs. It is on the west side of Highway 93 South in Kootenay National Park and past Parks Canada fire operations facilities, which are currently in use.

This project will reduce infrastructure no longer required in the park, reduce operational and maintenance cost, restore the area to its natural condition, and improve important wildlife habitat and corridors in the Kootenay crossing area. Removal of these facilities, restoration of the area and reduction in human use will contribute to Park's Canada general objective to maintain or improve ecological integrity.
