Assessing the Impacts of Expanding the Elk Lake Rowing Centre
The Victoria City Rowing Society have outgrown their current facility and would like to expand.  The study looked at what impacts this would cause, and the related costs and benefits.
The Society use Elk Lake...as do fishers, water skiers, wildfowl and bird watchers, recreational boaters and ski-doers, and families with children who swim from the lakes beaches. Previously, YTA had developed a Code of Conduct for Water Users, which had attempted to allocate scarce time and water space.
The question that CRD wanted to have answered was will a larger boathouse lead to more rowing and an unacceptable level of use for this one user group. The study determined that the expansion would have very little impact on the number of rowers and that most conflicts did not involve rowing or rowers.
