Irrigation districts to be hounoured
Castanet.net - by Castanet Staff - Story: 58189 - Nov 11, 2010

After nearly 150 years of combined service to Westside residents, the Westbank and Lakeview Irrigation Districts will close their doors on December 31.

Their operations and assets will be transferred to the District of West Kelowna, as required by the Letters Patent issued by the Provincial Government at the time of municipality’s incorporation.

Mayor Doug Findlater says it is appropriate for West Kelowna to give these utilities a proper goodbye and show appreciation before they become a part of municipal operations on January 1.

The municipality will hold a public open house on Tuesday, November 16, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Westbank Lions Hall, with a special presentation to be held at 7 p.m.

Mayor Findlater says this celebratory event serves as the perfect opportunity to honour the irrigation districts’ histories, recognize their many accomplishments and welcome them into the West Kelowna family.

“For many, a lot of emotion surrounds the dissolution of the irrigation districts, which was a provincial decision that arose from the community’s decision to incorporate in 2007," says Findlater.

"One can’t simply close the doors on these organizations without recognizing all the services the irrigation districts have provided and the investment that employees, boards of trustees and customers have poured into these utilities for so many decades.”

The Westbank Irrigation District has been a part of the community since 1922 and the Lakeview Irrigation District since 1951. In addition to providing water to homes, businesses and farms, Westbank Irrigation District operated a cemetery and Lakeview Irrigation District managed recreational properties including Anders Park, Issler Park and the Lakeview Heights Women’s Institute Hall, which was later named Lakeview Heights Community Hall.

Both utilities also built significant infrastructure over the years, including major works within the past decade. The Westbank utility completed the state of the art Powers Creek Treatment Plant in 2007 and added an ultraviolet disinfection system in 2009 at a combined cost of $18 million. In 2005, the Lakeview utility raised the level of the Bighorn Reservoir for $1.5 million.

“These projects and services only begin to tell the story about these two organizations, which is why it is appropriate to hold an event in recognition of all their accomplishments. It’s also a time to recognize the continuing evolution of local government from irrigation district, to regional district to municipality."

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.
° Latecomers are recommended.
° Capacity of the utility will increase by approximately 50%.
° In the Regional District, DCCs are only required for the Westside Wastewater Treatment Plant, not for water utilities.
KNOWLES/NOVAKOWSKI
THAT the Regional Board approve increasing the Capital Reserve Fund for the West Kelowna Estates Water Utility to $9,000.00 per residential unit;
AND FURTHER THAT the Regional Board authorizes the Engineering Services Department to enter into a latecomer agreement with the West Kelowna Estates area developers, to ensure all developers contribute to the Capital Reserve Fund in a fair and equitable manner;
AND FURTHER THAT Engineering staff expand the report to the Regional Board by providing information on development potential for the West Kelowna Estates area.

RDCO removed one property and added the Shorts Creek Firehall into the service area.
RDCO removed one property and added the Shorts Creek Firehall into the Upper Fintry Water service area without the service area voting on it.  Central Okanagan West Director Jim Edgson made the decision to add Shorts Creek Firehall into the service area for everyone.  I don't know about you but I would like the see the payments the Firehall is making towards the water system so I know everyone in the service area isn't paying the $17,500 water system for the Firehall.  All taxpayers should be paying for that hookup, not just the service area.

[85] The Health Act describes a "health hazard" as something which does not meet prescribed standards which, for sewage disposal systems, are set out in the regulations. A failure to meet these standards constitutes a health hazard under the Act. Section 3(3) of the Sewage Disposal Regulation contains a mandatory prohibition against the issuance of a permit. It stipulates that no permit shall be issued unless the health authorities are satisfied that "the construction, installation and ultimate use will not contravene this Act or this regulation". Thus, I am led to the ineluctable conclusion that both the public health engineer and the public health inspector were negligent in recommending that a permit for construction be issued.

[97] Section 3 of the Sewage Disposal Regulation states that a permit shall not be issued if the disposal system, which obviously includes a water source, will contravene the Act or this regulation. The Health Act also contains the mandatory provisions dealing with waterworks systems. So, if the proposed disposal system also contemplated the creation of a waterworks system, ss.21-22 of the Health Act was to be complied with in addition to the regulations, regardless of whether or not a separate application was made.

[98] Finally, the Ministry's policy was that in the case of a waterworks system the water must be tested by a health unit for potability.

[99] One of the specific job functions of the public health engineer, Miller, was to investigate and assess unapproved water systems. It follows from this that his duties were not limited to situations where a formal application had been made.

[100] The public health officials at bar had express duties with respect to the enforcement of the Act and the regulations. They did not have any discretion as to whether or not to enforce the relevant provisions of the Act or the Ministry's policy. I find they were aware that a waterworks system was installed in respect of Lots 3 and 4. That being so, they had an obligation to comply with the Act and with the Ministry's policy. It follows that they cannot escape liability by relying upon their own inaction with respect to such enforcement. In the present case they should have insisted that construction of a waterworks system be in compliance with the appropriate standards and policies, including those with respect to water testing.

[101] I find that in law and in fact North Shore Health and the public health inspector are the servants and agents of the Ministry of Health. Even though a health unit is created by statute and assigned certain statutory responsibilities, in terms of the exercise and liability for the exercise of those statutory responsibilities it still remains an integral part of the Ministry of Health. Insofar as liability is concerned, it is not a separate legal entity.

[102] Likewise, the public health engineer, Miller, is an employee of the Ministry. His duties are statutory duties under the Health Act. The Ministry is liable for his negligence, both in endorsing the recommendation that a permit be issued for the sewage disposal system and in failing to exercise his statutory duties in regard to both the sewage disposal system and the water source and supply pertaining to Lots 3 and 4.
 

B. PETER PEART AND PETER PEART GEOTECHNICAL LTD.

[103] It is settled law that engineers who participate in design and construction of a building or system will owe a duty in tort to subsequent purchasers.

[114] During the relevant period of time, the applicable building codes were the codes of Canada and of British Columbia. The National Building Code of Canada, 1990, stipulated:

9.31.3.1. Required Water Supply. Every dwelling unit shall be supplied with potable water.


[130] With regard to the evidence called by the defendants of Mr. Dybvig, the appraiser, his evidence was based on what I find was the totally false assumption that the water and sewage scenario on Lot 3 simply constituted a functioning, lawful, valid and conforming use. That is not true of either the water or the sewage system. Separately and jointly they constitute an unlawful health hazard. Likewise I disregard the appraisal evidence of Mr. Collins since I find on the evidence nothing but a nominal value can be given to a residential property that is bereft of both a lawful source of potable water and a sewage system. I am persuaded that there is no market for such a property, other than at a nominal price.

[131] In the result, I award general damages to the plaintiffs of $165,000 from which must be deducted the holdback of $11,500, for a total of $153,500.

Historical Review of the Regional District of Central Okanagan

Regional and Community Planning Letters Patent issued in 1969
Under the authority of Supplementary Letters Patent dated March 19, 1969 the Regional District was granted the function of regional and community planning. It is noted that Community Planning Area #1 and part of Community Planning Area #2 established under the Local Services Act were within the boundaries of the Regional District and that certain regulations applied to those areas. These areas encompassed the Lakeview Heights area, South Pandosy and Rutland community north to Pino Road, all of which were outside the boundary of the City of Kelowna. In October of 1969, the provincial government passed an order in council to apply the regulations which were in force and effect in those areas as if they were bylaws adopted by the Regional Board. These regulations related to land use within those areas. (page 20 or 23)

  • Initial regulations pertaining to the management of land use and subdivision
    established for Community Planning Area No. 1 under Supplementary Letters
    Patent, approved by the Provincial Government on October 27, 1969. (page 25)

  • Division (3) of Community Planning Area No.1 Regulations pertaining to
    subdivision repealed March 17, 1971 and replaced by Subdivision Regulations
    262/70 of the Local Services Act. (page 25)

Local Services Act 183/59
Local Services Act 495/59
Local Services Act 262/70

Building Inspection
With the issuance of letters patent by the provincial government to enact and establish building regulations throughout the electoral areas, which were previously carried out under provincial jurisdiction, provincial building inspectors, Edward Ashton and Allan Cushing, transferred and became Regional District employees. In April 1971, the Regional Board enacted and established building regulations pursuant to its authority granted by the Province. Subject to several amendments so as to make it more applicable to the Central Okanagan and to improve standards, the regulation adopted by the Regional District encompassed most of the National Building Code of Canada and supplements thereto and set building permit fees.
