The purpose of this land use plan is to maintain the ecological integrity of the remaining land and water systems, and to identify those areas required to perpetuate the remaining wildlife resources of the southern Trench. It was produced out of necessity at this time prior to completion of post-impoundment studies since the Land Management Branch intends to lift the Libby Displacement Reserve and wildlife interests must be protected. Planning follows intensive research in the Libby area-of-influence from 1968 onward, as funded by the B.C. Fish and Wildlife Branch and the B.C. Hydro and Power Authority as administrated by the Water Rights Branch. In the fiscal year 1978-79, a five-year Libby program for fish and wildlife was inaugurated with funds committed by B.C. Hydro to carry out the program. From completion of this report until the end of the five-year program, attention will be given to drafting management plans for the Libby area-of influence, which must be implemented along with this plan in order to maintain the wildlife values of the southern Trench.
