Upgrades at Buntzen Lake


The trails around Buntzen Lake get plenty of use and along with time and the forces of nature, damage to trails and infrastructure is inevitable.

The bridges on the east side of Buntzen Lake were upgraded between late 2016 and spring 2017.

A section of this wooden railing was damaged since at least April 2014…

As the drop below is not insignificant, this should have been repaired much sooner.

There was plenty of rain last winter and drainage has been greatly improved, such as this area on the east side of Buntzen Lake…

New steps were installed just off of Pump House Road, on the west side of Buntzen Lake. It allows easier access to the water…

There are also minor repairs such as repaired wooden steps at the suspension bridge…

As many of the bridges around Buntzen Lake are quite old, many have fallen into disrepair such as this one on Lakeview Trail…

Damaged Bridge

Bridge repairs are usually done quite fast.
I have been informed (April 2015) by Buntzen Lake officials that many bridges around the lake are planned to be replaced.

Another improvement project in the works is replacing many trail markers on Eagle Ridge/Mountain. The trails on Eagle Ridge/Mountain are difficult and the definition of wilderness. On a hike November 2014, the snow covered the main trail and I had difficulty finding trail markers around Tangled Summit (seen below) and points to the west. A joint effort between Buntzen Lake officials and Coquitlam Search and Rescue will hopefully improve trail markers on Eagle Ridge.

  1. I operate a vape store directory and we have had a posting from a vape store in the USA that also offers CBD items. A Calendar month later on, PayPal has written to use to say that our account has been limited and have requested us to take out PayPal as a payment solution from our vape shop directory. We do not retail CBD products such as CBD oil. We simply provide online marketing solutions to CBD companies. I have checked out Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Reputable Wellness Retailer and if you take a good look, you will see that they supply a reasonably wide-ranging variety of CBD goods, particularly CBD oil and they also happen to take PayPal as a payment method. It seems that PayPal is administering contradictory standards to different companies. As a result of this stipulation, I can no longer accept PayPal on my CBD-related online site. This has restricted my payment choices and currently, I am heavily dependent on Cryptocurrency payments and straightforward bank transfers. I have checked with a lawyer from a Magic Circle law practice in London and they stated that what PayPal is doing is absolutely unlawful and inequitable as it ought to be applying a systematic standard to all firms. I am yet to get in touch with a different lawyer from a US law office in The city of london to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the USA. In the meantime, I would be very appreciative if anybody here at targetdomain could provide me with different payment processors/merchants that work with CBD companies.

  2. I am no longer sure the place you are getting your information, however great topic. I must spend some time studying much more or figuring out more. Thank you for great information I was looking for this info for my mission.
