Representatives from the Mission Group say their engineers have recommended doing maintenance work on a three-year-old dock that has been stationed off Clifton Road.

The piece of cement will be floating just off the bridge in front of Westbank First Nation territory for the next six to eight weeks while engineers try to deal with maintenance work on the undercarriage of the structure.

The 23-slip dock was approved to float in Crown land in 2007 amid concerns from the Friends of Knox Mountain about developing waterfront right beside the park. Nonetheless, the structure did meet the muster enough to pass a Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency screening process with Transport Canada and federal screening under the Canada Water Act before being stationed just off Paul’s Tomb where it has been in use for a couple of years, according to Mission Group principal Jonathan Friesen.

The slips are for homes marketed under the swanky Sheerwater Development, off Clifton Road in Glenmore.

Friesen said he was unsure of exactly what the maintenance issue was, only that the development groups’ engineers had recommended towing it away for the work.
