January 5, 2018

The CSRD has engaged an engineering consultant to review and update the 2007 Scotch Creek Master Water Plan for the community of Scotch Creek in Electoral Area F. An advisory committee has been established with representatives of the CSRD, the Electoral Area Director, representatives from Interior Health, First Nations and members of the public (residential and business.)

There is a renewed interest in the community to address water quality issues and to encourage deveopment in the Scotch Creek Area.  It is important to have an updated Master Water Plan in order to be ready for any potential grant opportunities that may be available in the future.  The Advisory Committee will work collaboratively to provide input and feedback to a final report drafted by the engineering consultant. The report will focus on the feasiblity of developing a phased water system that could be expanded in the future, and will identify capital and operating cost estimates.

Completed System Assessments and Studies

From time to time, and consistent with the policies of the Water Acquisition Strategy, the CSRD undertakes an Engineering assessment as part of the possible acquisition of an existing water system. The comprehensive study that results includes an assessment of the system as it currently exists, upgrades necessary, its capacity, source of water, and the estimated costs for upgrade, etc.
