The creation of a Water Master Plan for the District of West Kelowna is in the final stages and public input is currently being sought as part of the planning process.
Residents and stakeholders are asked to take part in a survey before October 18. The most convenient way to complete survey is online through the municipality’s homepage. Go to www.districtofwestkelowna.ca under Events & Meetings. Alternatively, residents may download and print a feedback form from the website, complete the paper copy and return it to Municipal Hall, at 2760 Cameron Road, West Kelowna, BC by 4:30 p.m. on October 18, 2013. Paper copies can also be picked up at Municipal Hall weekdays between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Please note that Municipal Hall will be closed Monday, October 14 for Thanksgiving.
The purpose of the Water Master Plan is to identify, evaluate and select reasonable and affordable infrastructure and operational options for the storage, delivery and treatment of the water being used in West Kelowna’s homes, schools, businesses, industries and agricultural operations. Based on an analysis of water supply, needs and use, current water treatment techniques and long term infrastructure requirements, seven possible options were identified.
Council struck the Water Master Plan Public Outreach Steering Committee to review the plan and the options and seek community and stakeholder input. As part of the community feedback process, open houses were held in Lakeview Heights on September 26 and in Westbank on September 30. The survey is the last step in the public input stage.
