Quote from the COSEWIC website
"Even in provincial protected areas there is damage by bathers because BC Parks has insufficient budget to control access or manage the springs to maintain conservation values. Resource managers have had to make difficult decisions to either ignore the habitat degradation by human bathers or to modify the springs to the extent that the natural habitat for invertebrates is obliterated. In the East Kootenays, Ram Creek Hot Springs Ecological Reserve is an example of the former."
