The Columbia Lake Management Plan (CLMP) replaced the Columbia Lake Management Strategy (which was adopted in 1997). The CLMP was developed through a collaborative process involving public engagement and input from a technical committee. The Columbia Lake Management Plan will help guide local government decisions related to Columbia Lake and was adopted by both the RDEK and Village of Canal Flats.

The planning process identified and analyzed ecological, cultural, and recreational values and concerns associated with Columbia Lake and developed management strategies to address concerns and leverage opportunities.
