Funds help small communities build for the future
July 13, 2008 - Vernon Morning Star - News - page B25

For the first time, communities with populations of less than 100,000 can now access more funding for cleaner water, better waste management and flood mitigation.

The small B.C. community funding is thanks to a $272-million investment by the federal and provincial governments through the Building Canada Plan.

Until 2014, the federal and provincial governments will each invest $136 million to be applied to projects approved under the communities component, which includes $25 million for flood mitigation.

Together with matching funds from the local governments, $408 million will be available, through until 2014, to help meet the local infrastructure needs and priorities of smaller British Columbia communities.

“Our government is proud to commit this unprecedented level of funding to assist communities with populations of less than 100,000,” said Lawrence Cannon, minister of transport.

“Working with our partners in the spirit of open federalism allows us to provide better sewer, water, local roads, tourism infrastructure, short-sea shipping, and short-line rail, as well as flood mitigation infrastructure. This will make a real difference in the everyday lives of the people in B.C.’s smaller communities.”

Stockwell Day, the federal public safety minister, is pleased with the announcement.

“The communities component will help to address the infrastructure needs of smaller communities to help develop a stronger, safer and better British Columbia,” said Day.

“Building Canada will provide targeted funding for infrastructure projects in communities with populations of less than 100,000 – helping these communities meet their unique challenges.”

Eligible applicants may now submit applications for the first round of the communities component.

The focus of the first intake will be projects related to sewer, water, local roads, tourism infrastructure, short-sea shipping, and short-line rail, as well as flood mitigation.

Projects funded will be selected through a competitive process, with priority given to those demonstrating the principles of sustainability and supporting provincial initiatives such as action on climate change and the objectives in B.C.’s Energy Plan, Living Water Smart and Green Building Code.

Applications are available on the B.C. Secretariat website at www.bcbuildingcanadafundcommunities.ca, with a deadline of Sept. 5.

“Today’s announcement supports our commitment to work in partnership with federal and local governments to ensure high-quality, modern public infrastructure,” said Kevin Falcon, minister of transportation.

“This new infrastructure funding will contribute to long-term economic growth, a clean environment and strong communities.”

“The Province is committed to helping B.C.’s local governments build and improve their communities,” said Blair Lekstrom, Minister of Community Development. “This new infrastructure funding will be key in supporting local governments as they build strong local economies and greener, more sustainable communities.”

“By targeting communities with populations of less than 100,000, the Communities Component will deliver more per-capita funding than the previous Municipal Rural Infrastructure Program,” said Susan Gimse, president of the Union of British Columbia Municipalities. “Building Canada is an excellent example of governments working together to renew infrastructure in B.C. communities.”

All local governments, large and small, will have the opportunity to benefit from Building Canada. Over $1.485 billion will be transferred to British Columbia local governments through the federal Gas Tax Fund between 2007 and 2014. Further, both governments have agreed that a further $78 million will be made available for major projects in communities with populations over 100,000 or to further supplement the Communities Component. In addition, significant funding will flow to major projects of importance to municipalities. For example, Canada and British Columbia today announced a tri-partite working group with representatives from all three levels of government to advance planning and preparations for moving forward on the first phase of the Capital Regional District Sewage Treatment Project.

Through its unprecedented $33-billion Building Canada infrastructure plan, the federal government is providing long-term, stable and predictable funding to help meet infrastructure needs across Canada. Building Canada will support a stronger, safer and better country. On Nov. 6, 2007 the governments of Canada and British Columbia announced the signing of a Framework Agreement under Building Canada worth $2.2 billion.

The Communities Component of the Building Canada Fund will be administered jointly by Western Economic Diversification Canada, and the provincial Ministry of Community Development.

a) Acquiring Private Water Utilities
Hilary read his report on the Regional District’s position on acquiring and operating private water utilities. Consideration is given based on the following:
That the current owners of the system support transferring the utility over to the Regional District.
That area residents are also in general support of the Regional District owning and managing the system.
That an analysis of the water system is completed so the Regional District has a good understanding as to the integrity of the system and the works that are required to bring the utility up to a standard satisfactory to the Regional District.
That the cost to upgrade the system, and a petition to establish the function, is supported by the area residents.
If conflict exists between the utility owner and the water users, the issue should be resolved and dealt with through the provincial ministry overseeing the private utility;
OR
Residents can form their own committee, make an offer to the owner and then petition the Regional District to make a specified area and prepare a borrowing bylaw to purchase the utility. It would then be assessed and a financial plan put together.
The Regional District cannot arbitrarily determine to take over the utility if it is not supported by the current utility owner.
Discussion re. cost. Hilary explained that with the Board’s support, money from the feasibility fund would pay for a consultant’s analysis of the system, to determine how the system could be upgraded to minimize liability. A formal petition with the established cost would then be prepared. The cost of the study would be repaid to the feasibility fund if the utility was acquired.

a) Sunnyside & West Kelowna Estates Water Utilities – Capital Reserve Funds Don reported that a review of the Sunnyside and West Kelowna Estates Water Utilities has been completed, including budgets, upgrading and proposed expansions to each utility. He advised that there has been considerable interest
regarding expansion of the Sunnyside Water Utility and that Green Bay has already been included in the Utility, and discussions are underway to include the Barona Beach Development, the Pritchard Drive Water Utility service area, and the Hitchner Drive Area.
Sunnyside Water Utility is in good condition.
Developers will pay for the proposed extension of the Boucherie Road water main to Barona Beach, which will bring water closer to the Pritchard and Hitchner Drive areas, at no cost to area residents.
Contributions from developers into the Capital Reserve Fund will provide sufficient funds to complete the works.
No increase is required for the Capital Reserve Fund, and it will remain at $2,056 per residential unit or equivalency.
D.E. Pilling & Associates’ review of W. Kelowna Estates identified that the water system is nearing its capacity. For development to continue, considerable upgrading is required, which is estimated at $2,250,000. The Regional District has approximately $1,000,000 in Capital Reserve Funds. Developers’ contributions would increase from $3,000.00 to $9,000.00 per residential unit.
Commercial, industrial, and institutional users would contribute at $9,000.00 per residential equivalency.
D.E. Pilling met with developers. It was recognized that this is costly, but the alternative is not being able to develop.

2005 STRATEGIC WATER SERVICING PLAN

(Page 26)
GEID (Glenmore-Ellison Improvement District) purchased the assets of the McKinley Landing water utility and are now running the water utility.
Water quality is currently being monitored at the two potential intake sites. Thermistor chains have been installed and initial readings show that warm water currents from the surface reach depths of up to 30 metres. It is expected that the new intake will be installed to a minimum depth of 40 metres.
----------------------------------------------------------

(page 27)
The water districts of Black Mountain Irrigation District (BMID), South East Kelowna Irrigation District (SEKID) and Glenmore-Ellison Improvement District (GEID) rely heavily on the upper watersheds for the majority of their source water supply. A description of the watersheds where their water supplies originate is provided in this section.
BMIDWATERSHEDS
BMID obtains water from two watersheds: Mission Creek and Scotty Creek. The primary source of water is Mission Creek, which also supplies approximately 30% of the total inflow to Okanagan Lake.
Mission Creek
The Mission Creek watershed area above the BMID intake is estimated to be 561 km2. The watershed is unique to the Okanagan as it contains the Graystoke area which has substantial land area with elevations over 5,000 feet. This area produces a significant annual volume of runoff and is now a designated Provincial Park. 2002 Mission Creek Freshet at BMID WTP Intake BMID operates four storage reservoirs in the Mission Creek watershed to capture snowmelt runoff in the spring. Upper level reservoirs are Fish Hawk Reservoir (1,850 ML), Graystoke Lake Reservoir (4,550 ML), and Ideal Lake (6,780 ML). Loch Long (710 ML) is also operated by BMID. The storage license on Loch Long is held by the Province for the enhancement of fish flows in Mission Creek during the late summer and early fall season each year. After spring runoff subsides, water is released from the reservoirs to Mission Creek and is captured at a lower elevation intake where it is diverted through the water treatment plant, balancing reservoirs, and to the water distribution system.
---------------------------------------------------------

On June 30th, 2004, the Province of BC released new Groundwater Protection Regulations. They are posted on the web at: http://www.env.gov.bc.ca/wsd/plan_protect_sustain/groundwater/
The regulations set out the requirements for qualified and registered well drillers and well pump installers in the Province. The regulation also sets out requirements for groundwater protection, including surface sealing of well heads, well identification procedures, deactivation and closing of wells, well caps and well covers, floodproofing of wells and protection of the wellhead.
--------------------------------------------------------------

(page 59
The Rutland system can meet the domestic and fire flow requirements of all users with only a few exceptions. The system is well interconnected and supplied by multiple sources, and is therefore very reliable. Water quality in most of the wells is good, but water from some wells in the north part of the District is high in hardness, manganese and iron. The poorer quality wells are only used when water demand is high.
---------------------------------------------------------

(page 91)
There is over $120,000,000 in capital expenditures planned for the KJWC utilities in the next 20 years.
Of the total expenditures planned, water treatment forms approximately half of the total expenditure.
Major treatment and water quality improvement projects are planned for BMID, GEID and SEKID;
- As water treatment forms a significant portion of the overall water improvement projects, the water utilities must plan how to move forward on these financial issues. Water quality and renewal initiatives will have the largest impact on utility rates in the next 20 years.

e) Regional District Water System Review
Don explained that budget reviews for 2004 indicate a shortfall in revenues for three of the Regional District Water Utilities, i.e. Killiney Beach, Falconridge and Sunset Ranch. This necessitates an increase in user and/or maintenance fees. A financial analysis for each utility has been prepared. The recommended increases in user and maintenance fees outlined in the report are supported by the Finance Department.
Killiney Beach has been paying a parcel tax for the past 20 years to service a long term debt for capital works. The debt has now been paid off. $155,022 is currently in the Capital Reserve, and two capital projects have been slated for 2005 and 2012. It is felt prudent to replace the parcel tax with a maintenance fee of $120 in 2004 and 2005, and then increase it by 2.5% per year thereafter.
Sunset Ranch is a new utility developed in conjunction with the Sunset Ranch Subdivision. A financial analysis will be completed by the end of 2004. Expenditures have been higher than anticipated due to electricity and staff time, and it is recommended that developed parcels be subject to a maintenance fee in lieu of the user fee. It is also recommended that the developer be responsible for the maintenance fee on vacant parcels, and that this should be increased to $2,400.00 to offset the projected shortfall in revenues.
Falconridge
Residents are currently paying a parcel tax of $620.00 per parcel to service a long-term debt for capital works and user fees of $300 per parcel once connected. The utility is currently working on a slight deficit budget. No funds are being added to reserves for capital expenditures associated with the depreciation and replacement of the existing works. It is recommended that user fees be raised, and also that when the parcel tax expires in 2011, it be replaced by a maintenance fee of $300 per year. Based on the financial analysis, the user fee would need to be $360 in 2004, $380 in 2005, $400 in 2006 and would increase by 2.5% per year thereafter.
Money is needed to go into the Capital Reserve to allow for depreciation of equipment.

North Westside Water Study (page 3 Fall 2007 Water Talk)
Property owners in two subdivisions along North Westside Road attended a public meeting earlier this month at the Killiney Beach Community Hall. They’re considering whether the Regional District of Central Okanagan (RDCO) should proceed with further studies into the options available for a community water service in the Upper Fintry and Valley of the Sun areas. The province approved the creation of hundreds of lots in these areas prior to the formation of the RDCO in 1967, even though there was no provision for any in-house water service.  Earlier this year, some property owners in the two areas approached the RDCO, asking it to look into the feasibility and options for establishing a water distribution system. Agua Consulting Limited was contracted to do an initial study (the results were presented last month), and it suggests that developing such a system to service households could cost between $15,000 and $25,000 per lot. Before any final decision is made whether to proceed with the project, residents’ support would be required through a formal petition process.

Water Grants Approved
The RDCO has received funding from the Canada/BC Infrastructure Planning Grant Program to help plan two water-related projects.

• $6,500 for a study of priorities and cost estimates of a capital plan for the West Kelowna Water System. This project will focus on the requirements for water intake supply, the pump house, water treatment, and upgrades required throughout the system.

$5,000 for the recently completed study into the feasibility, options, and estimated costs of providing a community water supply and distribution system for the Upper Fintry and Valley of the Sun areas of North Westside Road.

Okanagan Trail Riders Association (volunteer organization) applied to Okanagan Basin Water Board for a grant of $30,000 to fix and repair trails that have a direct impact in the Bear Creek corridor as well as building bridges in two areas around Bear Creek.

It was suggested in the future that the association consider joint applications with the water purveyor, Lakeview Irrigation District.

Grants Increased to Small Communities

OKANAGAN – Peachland and Summerland are benefiting from $755,003 in provincial funding, announced Okanagan-Westside MLA Rick Thorpe.

“Increasing our support to our growing Okanagan communities’ ability to successfully provide services is important,” said Thorpe. “I am proud of our governments’ commitment to continue to increase funding to help Summerland and Peachland meet their operating costs.”

These grants will be distributed to these communities as follows in 2008:
• Peachland will receive $429,694
• Summerland will receive $325,309

Small Community Grants assist small and medium-sized area municipalities to fund local and basic services. The grant allocation is based on a formula with three elements: basic funding for all municipalities with a population of less than 15,000, population-based funding, and property assessment-based funding.

The Small Community and Regional District Grants are part of a series of programs available to local governments to help provide services and infrastructure. This includes annual Traffic Fine Revenue Sharing, LocalMotion, Towns for Tomorrow and B.C. Spirit Squares funding, as well as the Green City Awards.

article from the Vernon Morning Star March 19, 2008

There could be water wars in the Okanagan Basin by 2050.  Licences for both use of groundwater and surface water should be restricted, and more enforceable tools are needed.  He suggested a plan to formulate a plan to buy back water licences, and he wondered whether upstream licences take into account the consequences they will have on downstream resources.

Greater Vernon water rates climb
By Richard Rolke - Vernon Morning Star - April 20, 2008

“The guy who uses a big amount of water pays the same as the guy who keeps his water down to a minimum.”

— Cliff Kanester

Greater Vernon residents will be paying more every time they turn on the tap.

The Greater Vernon Services Committee approved changes to the water rates bylaw Thursday, including a 5.5 per cent increase for residential, industrial, commercial and institutional customers.

“They are a hell of an increase,” said Stan Field, BX-Silver Star director.

Of the 5.5 per cent, three per cent is to pay for projects related to the master water plan, while the remaining 2.5 per cent represents general and construction inflation.

The only board member to oppose the new rates was Cliff Kanester, BX-Swan Lake director.

Kanester insists that the billing structure does nothing to encourage water conservation.

“The guy who uses a big amount of water pays the same as the guy who keeps his water down to a minimum,” he said.

Agricultural rates have been increased at the B.C. rate of inflation of 1.8 per cent.

Staff recommended that the directors support the rate hikes Thursday.

“If the bylaw is not passed, the existing rates and fees will continue to be charged,” said Al Cotsworth, utility manager, in a memo.

“This will reduce the utility’s income and rate increases will have to be deferred to a future year, or capital projects will become further delayed.”

RDCO website links re: LaCasa

Clipart - New www.regionaldistrict.com/docs/engineering/nwwater/lacasastudy_jan08.pdf
- Based on initial cost estimates, the total cost per single family lot will be in the range $14,000 (pg 13)
-
Fire flow (FF) 30.3 L/s (rural) for 2.0 hrs or 60 L/s for 1.0 hr (pg 4)
- Fire flow (FF) 30.3 L/s (LaCasa)
Min. 75 L/s for 1.67 hr for SF
Min. 150 L/s for 2.0 hr for MF (pg 6)
- Note: Fire flows and storage will not be adequate to fight a major forest fire. (pg 6)
- The first phase of development recommended would be to install capacity to provide 60 L/s flow from the pump station and at least 75 L/s fire flow for 1.67 hrs. (pg 13)
- Once the integration with the north developments is completed the above described
main,
with the exception of the 500mm diameter section, will become part of the La Casa distribution system. (pg 10) (Does this mean that part of the water system will be owned by LaCasa?)
- LaCasa water system will experience significant upgrades as a result of the integration process, mainly in regards to enhanced disinfection, redundancy in pumping capacity and a higher level of fire protection capacity. (pg 6) (Will LaCasa have to pay anything for their upgrades or do we foot the entire bill?)
- Engineering 10% $493,010 divided by 492 connections = $1,002 (pg 15) (Is this amount for labour, or what does this amount for Engineering include?)
- Contingency 15% $739,515 divided by 492 connections = $1,503 (pg 15) (is this amount for repair and replacement when the system ages because if it is, some would rather borrow the money later instead of paying interest on money sitting doing nothing)
- RDCO Interim Project Financing Fee $616,263 divided by 492 connections = $1,253 (pg 15) (Why doesn't RDCO let the residents pay the interim financing fee?  Is interest included in the Project Financing fee?)
- RDCO Administration Fee 3% $184,879 divided by the estimated 492 connections = $375.77. (pg 15) (This is definitely a rape fee because RDCO is already paid our tax money to administer the area...maybe you would rather call it double dipping but we call it rape.)
- The minimum diameter required based on a maximum flow velocity of 2.0 m/s is 250mm however a minimum 300mm diameter main is recommended to accommodate higher flows that could result from additional developments in the area. (pg 10) (Wonder who will have to pay for the larger pipe to compensate for the other developments .... because Valley of the Sun or Upper Fintry should not have to pay for a larger pipe you would think)

Ministry of Environment - What is a Private Water Utility?
A water utility under the Water Utility Act is a person/business who owns or operates equipment or facilities for the delivery of domestic water service to five (5) or more persons or to a corporation for compensation. Private water utilities are usually created by developers to serve rural land development where community water service is required for subdivision approval and where there is no other water purveyor in the area that can provide service. A Water Utility is not a local authority such as a municipality, improvement district or local service area of a regional district and therefore not eligible for government funding such as infrastructure grants.
