Septic rates increase
by Staff Writer - Vernon Morning Star - Feb 27, 2015

The Regional District of Central Okanagan board has approved an amendment to the septic tank effluent and regulation bylaw.

This will increase the tipping fee for disposing of septic tank waste water at the regional septage facility in Lake Country.

The new rate of $47.27 per cubic meter begins Sunday and will result in the facility being funded entirely through tipping fee revenue.

Since 2008, RDCO septage disposal tipping fees increased two per cent each year to $39.41 in 2014.

Item 6.4 Quarterly Program Measures Report

091 - Septic Tank Disposal (Page 9): Surplus of $8,796 resulted from higher than anticipated tipping fees and under expenditure in contract services. Tipping fee base rate increased from $38.64 in 2013 to $39.41 for 2014. Capital contributions were made to the completed Lake Country Facility Stage 3 Upgrade from both the Regionally Significant Gas Tax Fund and capital reserves.

401 - Westside Sewer System & Treatment Plant (page 35): Surplus of $138,958 was attributable to lower than anticipated costs for Biosolids management, alum, contract services, odour control, equipment, biosolids removal and various line items. Polymer chemicals and electricity & natural gas costs $89,700 higher than expected.

401 - Westside Sewer System & Treatment Plant (page 35): Surplus of $138,958 was attributable to lower than anticipated costs for Biosolids management, alum, contract services, odour control, equipment, biosolids removal and various line items. Polymer chemicals and electricity & natural gas costs $89,700 higher than expected.

The2014 Lake Monitoring Report, a cost shared monitoring program of Okanagan Lake, is available to the public and posted on the RD website. A new five year contract for Biosolids Management was awarded to BioCentral. The firm is hauling solids leftover from the wastewater treatment process to its composting facility in a remote location near Merritt. The combined reduction in management fees and transportation costs are expected to result in $1.5 million in cost savings over the life of the contract based on current tonnage.

Landscaping project was completed with the planting of 120 trees and 250 shrubs to enhance visual appearance and eventually provide screening to surrounding properties when they mature. The wastewater reclamation system is in place and used for irrigation purposes. Approximately 1500m3 was chlorinated and reclaimed in 2014. Partnership with University of British Columbia initiated for an odour monitoring program.

The Operational Certificate permissible level for Total Phosphorus was updated in 2014 from 0.25 mg/L annual average to 0.20 mg/L annual average. For 2014 the annual average of Total Nitrogen was 6.1 mg/L. This exceeds the permissible level of 6.0 mg/L set in the Operational Certificate. An air balance on the HVAC was completed in May. Sludge pump auger feed screws were replaced due to mechanical failure.

2014 Capital Projects: Transformer project and Landscaping was completed. A Gerome Hydrogen Sulphide Analyzer was acquired. Biofilter refurbishment completed to improve foul air handling and treatment as part of the recommendations of the Odour Assessment. Dissolved Oxygen monitor and probes were purchased for Bioreactors 1 & 2. A Sludge Blanket Analyzer; MPulse Software, for maintenance management; Information Management Service Software, for collection of information; and a Liebert Cooling System, for cooling the computers and servers at the WWTP, were also part of
the 2014 expenditures.

470 - RDCO Lift Stations/Collector System (Page 39): Deficit of $5,301 was primarily due to increased maintenance to reduce odours along Gellatly Rd, West Kelowna. 2014 Capital Projects included installation of two new lift pumps at the Casa Lama station. Odour control carbon filled inserts on manhole lids were installed along the Gellatly corridor.

471 - WFN Lift Stations/Collector System (Page 42): Deficit of $7,364 due to expanded flushing program. The expanded maintenance program was coordinated with approval from Westbank First Nation staff.

472 - Peachland Lift Stations/Collector System (Page 44): Surplus of $1,452 was mainly due to the under expenditure in 11ft station repairs & maintenance offsetting the higher than anticipated costs for odour control chemicals, sewer line maintenance & flushing and various expense line Items.

499 - Ellison Sewer System (Page 46): Surplus of $3,755 was attributable to higher than anticipated sewer user fees and under expenditures in sewer line maintenance & flushing, and vehicle operations.

Agreements are under final review for the transfer of ownership of the sewer utilities at the Sunset Ranch development to the RDCO as approved by the Board for all current and future phases of the Sunset Ranch subdivision. Annual sewer maintenance fees increased from $97.92 in 2013 to $99.84 in 2014. Sewer utility charges were $296.04 In 2013 and increased to $302.04 for 2014.

Effective June 2014, Septic billing payments are no longer accepted online.

Westside Waste Disposal & Recycling Centre

The Regional Board has adopted an amendment to the 2014-2018 Financial Plan to pay for higher than anticipated expenses in operating the Westside Residential Waste Disposal and Recycling Centre. Reserve funds rather than increased service fees will be used to eliminate a deficit of $51,478 in the facility operation. During 2014 it cost more to dispose of an increased tonnage of yard waste that was dropped off by residents along with additional costs associated with drywall recycling.

Item 7.3 Westside Waste Disposal And Recycling Centre 2014 2018 Financial Plan Amending Bylaw No 1354 2015

Purpose:
To provide the Board with fourth quarter year-end information pertaining to the 2014 work plan and budget variance report.

Executive Summary:
Staff are pleased to present the Year End - 4th Quarter Work Plan and Budget Variance Report for 2014, This report indicates that most projects were either complete or substantially complete on or before December 31 '" 2014. At this time, both revenues and expenses are within anticipated budget parameters, with the following exceptions:

RECOMMENDATION:
THAT the Board receive this report for information.

====================

Item 7.4 Septage Disposal Tipping Fee Increase

Purpose:
To establish a new septage disposal tipping fee for 2015 for the Regional Septage Facility.

Executive Summary:
Since 2008, septage disposal tipping fees have increased at a rate of 2% per year from $35.00/m3 in 2008 to $39.41/m 3 in 2014. Despite the consistent increase in rates tipping fee revenue has remained relatively stagnant. Analysis of the residential septic system distribution within the Central Okanagan indicates that it is misaligned with tax requisition distribution.
Aligning septic system and tax requisition distribution is challenging given septic system distribution is not tracked and the likelihood for abrupt changes in distribution due to new large scale municipal sanitary sewer projects in areas currently serviced by septic systems.
Increasing the septage disposal tipping fee to $47.27/m3 (from 39.41/m3) would result in the Regional Septage Facility Service being funding entirely through tipping fee revenue, which is a more equitable and sustainable method of cost distribution. An increase to $47.27/m3 will result in an increase to septic system users of between $17.69 and $29.48 every three years or between $5.90 and $9.83 on an annualized basis.

RECOMMENDATIONS:
THAT the Regional Board approve increasing the current septage disposal fee to $47.27/m3

AND FURTHER THAT staff be directed to bring forward the Septic Tank Effluent and Regulation Amendment Bylaw for first, second and third readings and adoption.

7.4 Septage Disposal Tipping Fee Increase (All Directors - Unweighted Vote)

Staff report dated February 6, 2015 provided an overview of the septage disposal fees which have increased at a rate of 2% per year from 2008. Despite the increases revenue has remained relatively stagnant. Aligning septic system
and tax requisition distribution is challenging for a variety of reasons. Increasing the tipping fees would result in the regional septage facility service being funding entirely through tipping fee revenues which is more equitable and sustainable method of cost distribution.

It was queried that, with the proposed rate increase, is there a potential for septage hauling outside the RDCO, and if so, perhaps the rate increase from $39.41/m3 to $47.27/m3, be raised more slowly. It was clarified that, at this time, that concern has not materialized. In addition, other Regional Districts such as the RDNO require a chain of custody from the septage haulers to monitor septage dumping from other regions and the out of region tipping fee is much higher thereby discouraging this practice.

OPHUS/STACK
THAT the Regional Board approve increasing the current septage disposal fee to $47.27/m3;
AND FURTHER THAT staff be directed to bring forward the Septic Tank Effluent and Regulation Amendment Bylaw for first, second and third readings and adoption.

091 - Septic Tank Disposal
A 2% increase in the septage disposal fee was put into effect January 1, 2014, changing the rate from 38.64/m3 to $39.41/m3. Expansion of the facility continues in 2014 and is on budget. Disposal fees at the facility will be reviewed after the current plant expansion and upgrade is complete and a new agreement is in place between the Regional District and District of Lake Country. Lake Country's completion of the $7 million upgrade of the septage facility is expected in the fall.

401 - Westside Sewer System & Treatment Plant
On June 12, 2014, a Budget Amendment was approved by the Board relating to the increase in the Biosolids Transportation Plan. The direction from Interior Health to not proceed with the disposal of Biosolids at the Brenda Mines site has resulted in a budget increase of $355,200. The RD is proceeding with an Expression of Interest to identify and evaluate management options for biosolids. The average daily flow is 9,513m3/day; to June 30, 2014, 1,722,000 m3 of effluent has been treated. Supplier change for the purchase and delivery of Alum will result in projected savings of $15,500 in 2014.

2014 Projects: Recommendations from the Odour Control Assessment completed in 2013 were implemented in 2014 which included the initiation of the odour monitoring program in partnership with the University of British Columbia and modifications to the Biofilter. An air balance on the HVAC system was completed in May to assist in the reduction in Hydrogen Sulfide (HzS). CMH2 Hill provided the Biofilter Improvement assessment for a contract cost of $10,000. Recommended improvements of the biofilter assessment are 90% complete at June 30, 2014. Transformer purchased for $30,900 is awaiting installation. WWTP Landscaping Project: Landscape Design completed in May for $8,900. Request for Proposal closed July 31, 2014, for implementation of Landscaping Phases I and 2.

Purpose:
To provide a schedule for a formal review of all service establishment bylaws on a regular 5 year cycle.

Executive Summary:
The Board has approved a resolution that directs staff to bring forward all service establishment bylaws for regular review on a 5 year cycle. A spreadsheet summarizing all of the regional and sub-regional services provided in the Regional District of Central Okanagan is attached to this report as Schedules "A" and "B" respectively. These spreadsheets indicate what the service is, what bylaws or regulations apply, and when the service was last reviewed. Schedule "e" attached to this report recommends the years in which these services would be reviewed by the Board based on a 5 year cycle. The recommended schedule takes into account all of the service reviews that have been recently conducted as well as trying to group services for review in a logical sequence to evenly distribute the workload as much as possible.

5.3 Service Establishment Bylaw Review Schedule (All Directors - Unweighted Vote)

Staff report dated January 9,2014 provided a schedule for formal review of all regional service establishment bylaws on a five year cycle. An outline of the services and review targets was presented for consideration.
Of note:
- Why is the STPCO (Sustainable Transportation Partnership in Central Okanagan) not in the schedule? This service is provided by the City of Kelowna it is not an RDCO service (Transportation Demand Management is for the electoral areas only). Air Quality review has been included in 2016 as that is when the STPCO agreement expires.
- Okanagan Library is not a regional service, it has its own Board and issues should be raised at their Board.

BAKER/FIELDING
THAT the Regional Board approve the recommended schedule of service reviews outlined in the January 9, 2014 Service Establishment Bylaw Review Schedule report.

Septic Tank Disposal Fee Increasing
The Regional Board has approved a two per cent increase in the septage disposal fee for 2014 to a rate of $39.41 per cubic metre. Over the past five years, the rate to dispose of septic waste at the Regional Septage Facility at the District of Lake Country Wastewater Treatment Plant has risen two per cent each year. Disposal fees at the facility will be reviewed after the current plant expansion and upgrade is complete and a new agreement is in place between the Regional District and District of Lake Country.

8.4 Septage Disposal Tipping Fee (All Directors - Unweighted Vote) Staff report dated December 2, 2013 outlined the background of the septage disposal tipping fee for the regional septage facility located in Lake Country.

The fee has been set to what is believed to be acceptable levels for area residents. It was noted that the septage haulers have confirmed that escalating cost of disposal has contributed to customers doing less preventative maintenance on their septic systems and haulers transporting septage out of the region for lower tipping rates. Staff note that regional septage facility fees will be reviewed after the District of Lake Country's Wastewater Treatment Plant Stage 3 upgrade and operational review is completed.

Staff confirmed that Central Okanagan rates are the highest in the interior and close to the highest in BC. It is not recommended to change the fees until further review of the facility is upgraded. A tax requisition from member
municipalities will be required to maintain the service at the current time. Tax requisition is based on assessment as a regional service. Concern was expressed that the RDCO needs to be moving towards a cost recovery goal.

Staff noted that tipping fee revenues are higher than anticipated for this budget year. There have been many changes/challenges to the program including changes in the admin overhead policy. The service was close to cost recovery
before this occurred and it is anticipated that once the upgrades are completed to the Lake Country plant cost recovery may be possible.

The question of mandatory pump outs was raised and whether it is feasible to implement this region-wide. Staff noted this issue has previously been discussed and was forwarded to municipalities to request if they would entertain such regulations. To date no resolution has been received from the municipalities.

EDGSON/OPHUS
THAT staff be directed to bring a report to a future Governance & Services Committee on the ability for local governments to legislate mandatory septic tank pump outs.

CARRIED

================

In discussion, it was agreed that as there is a desire for cost recovery of the septage service and as costs continue to rise, a 2% increase in tipping fees would be appropriate and should be considered.

OPHUS/BAKER
THAT the Regional Board approve that the septage disposal tipping fee be increased by 2% to $39.41/m3 for 2014.

5. CORRESPONDENCE

5.1 Sylvis re: Information Referral for KIP Community Forest Biosolids Fertilization - Westbank First Nation

Sylvis letter of March 27, 2013 outlined Westbank First Nation's intention of implementing forest fertilization within two distinct areas of the KIP Community Forest tenure in 2013. This process is being managed by Heartland Economics for WFN and Sylvis will be performing the work.

It was noted that the Regional District contracts Sylvis to perform similar work for the RDCO. Staff noted that the fertilization plan will be expanded upon from originally being completed on Crown land (gravel pits) along the Highway 97C connector, now expanded to forest lands in Westbank First Nation lands. The approval process for the work is provincial multi-ministerial, including the Ministry of Environment.

The question was raised as this process is much closer to development and water systems are there any concerns to be raised? It is not close to 'public' sites but is within Crown land. Sylvis will be presenting to the OBWB Water Stewardship Committee on the project & application processes involved. Staff continue to work on odour reduction on site at the Wastewater Treatment Plant and the material being transported to its final destination.

FINDLATER/EDGSON
THAT the March 27,2013 letter from Sylvis regarding the Community Forest Biosolids Fertilization program for Westbank First Nation be received for information;
AND FURTHER THAT staff arrange for a presentation on the biosolids proposal by Sylvis to any partner Council that requests it.

The Board proposes spending $317,969 to upgrade and provide a backup centrifuge at the Regional facility that treats septic tank waste; $150,000 for a Regional Household Travel Survey and Analysis and $38,000 to review and update the Regional Air Quality Management Plan.

6. UNFINISHED BUSINESS

6.1 Regionally Significant Gas Tax Fund Project Approval (All Directors Unweighted Vote)

Staff report dated August 16, 2012 outlined the Regionally Significant Gas Tax Funds (RSP) remaining from the approximate $8.7mil allocated for the Central Okanagan. These funds must be allocated by the Regional Board prior to September 31, 2012. Staff from the RDCO and partner municipalities met to review various projects and have agreed to the three recommendations.

These are regional priorities, not necessarily municipal priorities.

The centrifuge upgrade for the regional septic facility in Lake Country is estimated at $600,000. There is $240,000 in reserve funding leaving a shortfall of approximately $42,000. At a future meeting staff will provide options for consideration of this shortfall. The request for the septage upgrade is for a secondary process. It is imperative to have a backup as this is the only
plant that serves the entire Central Okanagan. There will always be properties throughout all areas of the Central Okanagan that will be served by septic, not sewer. If the plant goes down there is currently no backup. The upgrade is budgeted in the 5-Year Financial Plan.
Concern was expressed that the Board is not fully aware of the complete plan for the septage facility noting the Board had discussed that the service should be self-funding operationally but that it would not be possible on a capital basis. Further information needs to be shared on the long-term plans for the facility.

Staff reviewed the requirements for an updated travel survey which will provide data for different modes of transportation (ie: time, purpose, mode) and comparing the results over time. This will be the third analysis completed-the
first in 1996 and the second in 2007 (which was co-funded by the City of Kelowna and Vernon).

Although there is no longer a valley-wide Airshed coalition, the Central Okanagan's air quality management plan requires updating and fits within the criteria of the RSP funding guidelines.

It was noted that the current criteria for the RSP funding is under Tier 2 funding and that cannot be changed for this phase of the federal gas tax funding.

BAKER/EDGSON
THAT the Board approve the following projects be forwarded to the Union of British Columbia Municipalities (UBCM) as eligible Regionally Significant Projects (RSP) utilizing the remaining $505,969 of funding available for the Central Okanagan Region;

• Central Okanagan Regional Household Travel Survey and Analysis - $150,000

Gas Tax Funding Applications

The Regional Board has approved submission of two applications for possible Federal Gas Tax funding for two large projects.

One application for the Gas Tax Innovation Fund is for up to $2-million in upgrades to the Killiney Beach Water System. The system, built in the 1980’s requires significant upgrades to ensure adequate storage capacity to meet demands while meeting water quality objectives.

The second application is to the Gas Tax General Strategic Priorities Fund for approximately $1-million to upgrade the existing effluent pipe into Okanagan Lake from the Westside Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant. The existing pipe which discharges treated and disinfected water into the lake was installed in 1988 and is nearing capacity and a second pipe would be installed to meet future needs.

2.3 2012 Budget Review

Marilyn Rilkoff began a review of the 2012 budget. The question was raised regarding FTE's (full-time equivalents) and whether the cost is applied to the department they report to or the service. FTE costs are allocated to individual services. If you participate in a service you pay a portion of FTE.

- Effluent Service - should be self-sustaining. If rates are too high, problems will occur. Efficiencies realized--engineering works improved. Although looking good this year, rates will go up in future years. There is significant impact due to the
new admin overhead policy.

- WWTP and lift stations and collector systems - new budget will be brought forward. Flows and cost sharing are changing--reduction to DWK, increase to WFN as their flows have increased. Shift is about 10%. The WWTP Sewer Committee met and was in favor of the proposed budget.

Agenda No: 10.1
Mtg Date: Feb 9, 2012

Governance and Services Report

TO: Governance and Services Committee
FROM: Harold Reay, CAO
DATE: January 31,2012
SUBJECT: Committee Structure

The Chair requested that staff review the Regional District's committee structure in order to determine the feasibility of reducing the number of committees to streamline processes and decision making, in order to reduce costs. After reviewing all committees, it is recommended that the Governance and Services Committee recommend to the Regional Board that the committees, for the year 2012, be amended as follows:

HR/ Committee - no longer required, it's terms of reference are now included in the HR/Audit Committee (Chair and Mayors)

Sustainability Committee - this committee is comprised of the Mayors and Chair and meets infrequently. This committee can be eliminated and should issues arise they could be referred to the HR/Audit Committee.

Treaty Advisory Committee - can be eliminated for now and reinstated should treaty negotiations commence.

Watercraft Committee - This committee is community members at large, the mayors, and one other Board member. This committee has met once in the last four years and can be eliminated.

Agricultural Advisory Commission - Comprised of 6 members from the public and one Ministry appointment. Planning staff have found their input to be of value when dealing with ALR applications and OCP development and amendments and wish to see this committee continue. Costs are minimal as one staff attends and meetings are infrequent.

Environmental Advisory Commission - Currently 16 members appointed from the public. Staff has found this committee to provide valuable advice, at minimal cost (staff time for agenda prep and minutes), however the number of members could
be reduced to 9. Our recommendation would be to reduce to 9 by not reappointing any member until we reach less than 9.

Central Okanagan West Advisory Planning Commission - The Director from this Electoral Area wishes to keep this committee as he relies upon it when reviewing applications.

Central Okanagan East Advisory Planning Commission - The Director from this Electoral Area does not wish to continue with this committee and should be eliminated.

Dog Advisory Commission - That this committee be held in abeyance at this time and no appointments be made. This committee will be reviewed by the consultant as part of the Dog Control service review, and recommendations will be forthcoming as to it's structure, if needed.

Westside Wastewater Treatment Plant Stakeholder Committee - this is comprised of one representative each of West Kelowna, Peachland, Westbank First Nation, and the Regional District. This committee meets only when needed and has been effective and it is recommended that the committee continue.

In addition to the above noted Regional District Committees the Regional District appoints a Director to external committees. Our recommendation relating to these appointments are:

Airport Advisory Committee - continue to appoint the Chair as a representative.

Highway 97 Coalition - Not sure if this committee is continuing so no appointment is necessary at this time.

Okanagan Airshed Coalition - no longer exists, staff will continue to liaison with the South Okanagan Similkameen RD on joint initiatives, the North Okanagan RD no longer participates in air quality programs.

Okanagan Marine Advisory Council - this committee no longer meets.

There will be some savings in reducing the number of committees and meetings. Directors are reimbursed $65 for half day meetings and $130 for full day meetings, plus staff time required for preparation and attendance. It is difficult to quantify the dollar amount, as it is dependent on the number of meetings held.

This is submitted for the Committee's consideration.

.pdf icon Item 9.3 Development Variance Permit Application.pdf

*Note* this is only a snippet, click link above for entire contents

Agenda No: 9.3
Mtg. Date: Aug. 22, 2011

TO: Chair & Members of the Regional Board
FROM: Ron Fralick, Manager of Current Planning
DATE: August 15, 201'1
SUBJECT: Development Variance Permit (Application VP-11-07) (D. & T. Willison - owners)
LOCATION: Adjacent to Dunwaters Road and Westside Road (Central Okanagan West Electoral Area)
LEGAL: Parcel B (being a consolidation of Lots '12 and 31, See LB140290), DL 3842, ODYD, Plan 16594

RECOMMENDATION:
THAT the Regional Board approves Development Variance Permit application VP-11-07 to vary RDCO Subdivision and Development Servicing Bylaw No. 704, Schedule C.2, s.2 - Type & Extent of Servicing, by exempting the proposed 2 lot subdivision from the required servicing identified in Table C.2.2.; Reference Sections 6.03,6.06,6.11 and 6.12.

-----------------------------

RATIONALE:
>- The subject parcel was originally two legal lots registered under Plan 16594 in 1966;
>- If approved, the variance and resulting subdivision will facilitate dedication of a 'Lane' to rectify the long-standing access issue by providing unrestricted legal access for the affected residents fronting Westside Road;
>- The variance will also facilitate routing and placement of a water main within the new road right-of-way associated with the RDCO's new Upper Fintry/Valley of the Sun Community Water System;
>- Non-approval of the variance will result in having to relocate the water main onto the Westside Road right-of-way resulting in low water pressure and potential for stagnant water in a dead-ended water main;
>- A qualified practitioner was commissioned to assess suitably for on-site sewage disposal.
The assessment indicates that both lots are suitable for Type 'I (conventional) on-site sewage treatment. The recommendations will be incorporated into a Section 219 covenant registered on titles at time of subdivision.
>- The subject parcel is located above Westside Road, a considerable distance from Okanagan Lake therefore on-site sewage disposal concerns from a lake impact perspective are negligible;
>- This variance represents an extenuating circumstance considered to be in the public interest and is not to be construed as representing staff or Regional Board support in future for requests to be exempt from the Community Sewer System requirement of Subdivision and Development Servicing Bylaw No. 704.

------------------------------------

AGENCY REFERRALS:

Environmental Services Department staff has but one concern with this application, that being both proposed lots being less than 1 ha in size. They will support the variance on the condition that septic suitability is proven prior to subdivision. A Type 1 (conventional) on-site sewage disposal system has been proven feasible for both proposed lots in accord with a septic suitability report recently prepared by a Qualified Practitioner (DeansTech Consulting Ltd.). The recommendations of the August 3, 2011 report will be registered against the titles of the proposed parcels as S.219 restrictive covenants at time of subdivision.

The required servicing for which the applicant is requesting a variance (street lighting, sidewalks, curb and gutter, underground wiring, and sanitary sewer) do not exist in the area and they have no future plans to provide them.

------------------------------------

DEVELOPMENT SERVICES STAFF COMMENTS:

Planning staff note that the request for exemption from the requirement of connection to a community sewage system represents the first such request to the Regional Board subsequent to Bylaw No. 704 being amended to incorporate this requirement. The requirement was precipitated in conjunction with Provincial direction for local governments to no longer allow subdivision of parcels less than 1 ha (2.47 acres) in size unless connected to a community sewer system as it could potentially impact approval of sewer grants. For this reason, Planning staff has consistently conveyed to the public that we would not support this type of variance request for subdivision approval.

As noted earlier, Environmental Services staff has provided rationale for supporting this particular application. Specifically, approval of the variance will facilitate dedication of a lane to rectify the incorrectly registered access easement by providing unrestricted legal access for the affected residents fronting Westside Road. The variance will also facilitate routing and placement of a water main within the lane right-of-way associated with the RDCO's new Upper Fintry/Valley of the Sun Community Water System. If the variance is not approved, the water main would have to be relocated within the Westside Road right-of-way resulting in low water pressure and potential for stagnant water in a dead-ended water main. A qualified practitioner was commissioned to assess suitability for on-site sewage disposal. The assessment indicates that both lots are
suitable for Type 'I (conventional) on-site sewage treatment. The recommendations will be incorporated into a Section 219 covenant registered on titles at time of subdivision.

----------------------------------

It was ultimately discovered that the easement was incorrectly registered at time of the original subdivision in 1966. Incorrect registration of the easement essentially resulted in landlocked parcels for those lots fronting Westside Road (Lot 6 south to Lot 21) due to the physical access issue onto Westside Road as noted above. This matter also created difficulties for RDCO staff in not being able to provide house numbering to those landowners wishing to construct residences on the inaccessible vacant lots.

Development Variance Permits: (Unweighted Vote)

9.3 Development Variance Permit Application for David & Terry Willison (owner) located at 7225 Dunwaters Road & 7160 Westside Road. (VP-1107) Central Okanagan West Electoral Area (Electoral Areas, West Kelowna Fringe Area, Kelowna Fringe Area)

Staff report dated August 15th outlined the application to consider a request to allow exemption of a proposed two lot subdivision from servicing requirements of Bylaw No. 704. Staff reviewed the rationale, including:
• The subject parcel was originally two legal lots registered under Plan 16594 in 1966;
• If approved, the variance and resulting subdivision will facilitate dedication of a 'Lane' to rectify the long-standing access issue by providing unrestricted legal access for the affected residents fronting Westside Road;
• The variance will also facilitate routing and placement of a water main within the new road right-of-way associated with the RDCO's new Upper Fintry/Valley of the Sun Community Water System;
• Non-approval of the variance will result in having to relocate the water main onto the Westside Road right-of-way resulting in low water pressure and potential for stagnant water in a dead-ended water main;
• A qualified practitioner was commissioned to assess suitability for on-site sewage disposal. The assessment indicates that both lots are suitable for Type 1 (conventional) on-site sewage treatment. The recommendations will be incorporated into a Section 219 covenant registered on titles at time of subdivision;
• The subject parcel is located above Westside Road, a considerable distance from Okanagan Lake therefore on-site sewage disposal concerns from a lake impact perspective are negligible;
• This variance represents an extenuating circumstance considered to be in the public interest and is not to be construed as representing staff or Regional Board support in future for requests to be exempt from the Community Sewer System requirement of Subdivision and Development Servicing Bylaw No. 704.

Further to the posting of Notice of Application sign and neighbouring property owner notification process, a form letter (signed by 6 neighbouring property owners) and four additional letters/emails have been received supporting the application. In
summary, all of the letters/emails indicate that approval of the application will benefit all the affected properties fronting Westside Road by facilitating proper installation of the community water distribution system and rectifying the long-standing access issue.

Chair Hobson asked if there was anyone in the gallery who deemed their property affected by the variance. There were none.
The question was raised regarding Lots 6-21 being in the same circumstance for access--do you expect a variance for each property? Staff noted the lane has been secured for all properties except for the three most northern properties. An easement has been secured giving unrestricted access for all properties.

EDGSON/FINDLATER
THAT the Regional Board approves Development Variance Permit application VP-1107 to vary RDCO Subdivision and Development Servicing Bylaw No. 704, Schedule C.2, s.2 - Type & Extent of Servicing, by exempting the proposed 2 lot subdivision from the required servicing identified in Table C.2.2.; Reference Sections 6.03, 6.06, 6.11 and 6.12.

Amendments have been adopted to the Westbank Sewage Specified Area Development Cost Charge (DCC) bylaw. The changes in the DCC structure will assist in funding future capital and capacity improvements at the WWTP facility. A new user fee structure has been implemented for the WWTP stakeholders to reflect community contributions for operation, maintenance and capital reserves. Investigations are ongoing for the Westside Wastewater Trunk Master Plan. WFN has confirmed routing option; District of West Kelowna has not confirmed a preferred option, further analysis may be required.

Staff report dated August 2, 2011 outlined the rationale for the upgrade of the regional septage facility in Lake Country. This project is one of the considerations for funding for the current regionally significant gas tax funding available to the Regional District.

Staff reviewed the service and service needs. The upgrade is part of an upgrade of the Lake Country Wastewater Treatment Plant. Operational costs are funded by rate increases. If rates increase too high a shortfall at the end of the year will occur and a deficit may occur should haulers go elsewhere.

Staff reviewed the reasons why there has been a deficit in the service in the past-fixed costs were there, rates were too high so haulers went elsewhere. Funding is either from users or taxpayers--the current cost to taxpayers is $0.25 cents per
home assessed at $500,000. Septage volumes are consistent year-to-year even with increased sewering in the member municipalities. There will always be septic systems throughout the region therefore a septage facility will always be required.

Director Craig arrived at 9:10 a.m.

The Committee was reminded that environmental projects are one of the priorities for gas tax funds.

The question was raised whether there would be a method to recover the total costs of operation of the facility to ensure no deficit at year-end ie: a parcel tax to residents on septic, septic enhancement fee, operational user fee? How much
subsidy is being provided by sewer users for individuals using septic? It was noted that the municipalities would need to confirm the number of residents on septic versus sewer.

The Committee was reminded that residents on sewer have received subsidies over the years through OBWB grants as well as provincial grants and that septic parcels have paid for upgrades to the wastewater treatment plants for the past forty years when many of them will never use the facility.

The question was raised whether it would be desirable to consider a bylaw that looks at future septic tank requirements for regular cleanouts. Should this be part of the modeling for the facility considering environmental protection, education,
goal of a self-sustaining model? Municipalities would need to provide the number of residents currently on septic, the number anticipated to move to sewer in the future and what their policies/bylaws are with respect to sewer hookup.

It was noted that 'Health' has delegated the responsibility for septic inspections so records may not be available.

The question was raised how much funding is required from the regionally significant funds for the septage facility upgrade? Staff believed it is approximately $780.000.

FIELDING/BAKER
THAT the Governance & Services Committee recommends that the Regional Board endorse the septage receiving facility upgrade as a regionally significant project.

CARRIED

SHEPHERD/EDGSON
THAT staff be directed to provide a review of the septic system financing for further discussion and that staff look at how the Regional District might improve environmental quality through compliance of the service.

Septic Treatment Facility Upgrade

The Regional Board has authorized the use of Regionally Significant Project funds for upgrades to the regional septic treatment facility located in the District of Lake Country. The plant receives and treats materials pumped from septic tanks across the Central Okanagan. The plant upgrade will provide redundancies that are not currently available and will address other operation and occupational health issues.

Rural residents seek city sewer hookup
Vernon Morning Star - By Richard Rolke - June 19, 2011

Rural areas want to be able to hook on to Vernon’s sewer system without joining the city.

The Regional District of North Okanagan is requesting that the City of Vernon consider changing its policies to allow non-residents to connect to the sewer treatment plant without having to be annexed.

“We have people who want sewer but they don’t want to join the city,” said Mike Macnabb, BX-Silver Star director.

Macnabb believes such an initiative could be financially beneficial for the city as it would create additional revenue.

“It makes economic sense to allow the hook-ups if there is capacity at the plant,” he said, adding that not annexing the areas would mean the city wouldn’t be financially responsible for roads and other services.

“Osoyoos had a similar policy but it now allows people to hook up because they get revenue from the sewer.”

But it’s unlikely the city will embrace RDNO’s request.

“From a management perspective, it’s challenging to have properties outside of jurisdictions that get services,” said Buffy Baumbrough , a Vernon director.

“If you want city services, you have the option to join the city.”

Wayne Lippert, a Vernon director, is opposed to amending the policy.

“There are some sewer customers in the electoral areas already that don’t pay their bills and we can’t make them comply because they are outside of our jurisdiction,” he said.

“It’s against the law to shut them off (of sewer) but we can’t make them comply and pay.”

Lippert says the city also has more control over what businesses and residents put into the sewer system if they are located within Vernon’s boundaries.
