Corix has now placed 52 meters which are reading and working well. While we have found some faulty curb stops, there have been no significant leaks found in our system. All faulty curb stops are being replaced with new valves, stems and bury boxes. B.I.D. infrastructure is sound and working well.
This is the first year in decades that B.I.D. has been able to operate within our water license. After our one May mishap of drawing down the entire system, we were using just under maximum licensed water this summer. The system has easily kept up with this year’s use. We are now using about 40,000 gallons a day and expect this to drop slightly for winter use. As Corix will continue the project, users should expect short interruptions in water service as services are turned off and on during pit installs. Whitelock Road users put up with a number of lengthy interruptions due to install failures and we would like to thank them for their patience and perseverance.
Corix will be running two crews to try and finish up the project, so we are now hoping for a long fall and late snow.
BY-LAW No. 6, also known as the WATER DISTRIBUTION REGULATIONS BY-LAW, was passed on May 26, 1983.
CORRECTION - The NOTICE OF TOLL - 2017, first paragraph incorrectly states, "..(Bylaw 62) for the ensuing year (from October 1, 2016 to September 30, 2017)."
It should read, "..(Bylaw 62) for the ensuing year (from October 1, 2017 to September 30, 2018)"
BID apologizes for any confusion.
The Bonnington Improvement District (BID) is a local authority responsible for providing water and fire hydrants for the benefit of the residents of Bonnington, British Columbia. Improvement districts are brought into existence by the B.C. Government through Cabinet Orders which authorize the passage of a document known as a Letters Patent. The Letters Patent contain the name of the improvement district, its boundary and the services which it will provide to the residents within that boundary. For specific boundary information residents must consult the BID Letters Patent document which is available for viewing upon request.
Every improvement district is governed by a board of elected trustees (elected by area property owners). Bonnington currently has three trustees. The powers exercised by the trustees (to enact and enforce its regulations and charges, to assess and collect taxes, to acquire, hold and dispose of lands, to borrow money and to expropriate lands) flow from the improvement district’s bylaws, the Local Government Act and other provincial government legislation. There are more than 200 improvement districts operating in the Province of British Columbia.
