Welcome to the Town of Gibsons
UPDATE – The George
A team of geotech investigators and specialized drilling rig(s) will be working on, and adjacent to, the site of the proposed George Hotel to conduct exploratory drilling tests and analysis. The work will be starting Friday, April 11, 2014.
The tests are part of further geotechnical investigations required by the Town of Gibsons to ensure the proposed development does not negatively impact the aquifer. Staff and the Town’s consultant on aquifer issues, Waterline Resources Inc., have reviewed the proposed drilling plans and will be monitoring the work.
