A set of dry kilns, the last major buildings on the site of the Slocan sawmill, have been demolished. Removal of the Springer Creek Forest Products mill has been underway since last fall.
Peter Brisco, CEO of parent company Brisco Wood Preservers, said the demolition contract runs to the end of October: “The buildings are done, but there’s quite a bit of material on site.”
Brisco said said no decision has been made on the property’s future, which will first require environmental testing. “We’re a ways out,” he said. “We’re still working on decommissioning the site.”
