New security fence for Riverwalk Subdivision in Barriere

A new chain link fence at Riverwalk Subdivision in Barriere, B.C., creates a locked compound that surrounds the wastewater tanks, the building and the emergency overflow pond.

Thanks to the expertise and supervision provided to two District of Barriere staffers, by 81-year-old fencing contractor Robert Bach in the art of proper industrial fence installation the project has been successfully completed.

The District notes that plans for the area also include planting vines along the fence line so as time goes by it will visually blend into the hillside behind it.
