Description

Adversity. Survival. Recovery. Much of the past 120 years of Howe Sound’s story has been woven to the happenings at Britannia Beach/Shishayu7ay. At the turn of the 20th century mining had been established in the Sound, and the largest was a copper mine at Britannia. Build up of mine tailings and run off through the abandoned tunnels leached Acid Rock Drainage into Britannia Creek, and subsequently into Howe Sound, for close to 100 years. It is estimated that as much as 450 kg (992 lbs) of copper was entering the waters of Howe Sound daily, making the runoff at Britannia one of the worst environmental disasters in North American history. In 2006 a water treatment plant became operational and now treats 4.2 billion liters of water annually, and in 2011 pink salmon returned to Britannia for the first time in over a century. The waters are recovering. Life is returning. Nature is reclaiming.
