Abstract: On June 6, 1995, a major flood event estimated to be greater than a Q200 flow, devastated the Elk Valley area of Southeastern British Columbia. Major highways, bridges and rail lines were impacted with damage estimates in the tens of millions. Fording Coal Limited sustained nearly 7 million dollars in damages to rail Unes, roads, bridges, settling ponds and other infrastructure. This paper summarizes the events leading up to the flood, describes the damages caused and remedial actions, and discusses what can be learned for the future.
