Re: Vernon/North Okanagan Detachment Policing Activity Report – 1 st

Quarter 2015

All crime statistics are featured at the end of this report. Statistics reflect monthly totals for January through March, 2015 and comparisons of the previous year, 2014.

March 31 st

marks the end of our annual performance planning cycle. Vernon/North Okanagan

Detachment (V/NOD) recorded a 9.66% increase in criminal code cases this quarter and ended the year with an 8.29% increase for the year 2014/2015. Property crime recorded a 7.87% increase this quarter and finished off the year with an increase of 18.56%.

The related enforcement initiatives of check-stops and impaired driving investigations were adversely affected by significant and continued resource-draining serious crime incidents and high calls for service.

Impaired driving investigations dropped 19.8% while check-stops were down 35%. Our ability to be consistent with proactive enforcement activities remains somewhat diminished as demands continue to tax human resources.

V/NOD has been successful in its application for grant funding through the British Columbia Civil

Forfeiture Office. V/NOD received $13,279 in funding through the Crime Remediation and Crime

Prevention Program to cover the cost of an electronic device used to conduct triage examinations on mobile devices at our detachment. With the increased use of technology by those involved in crime there comes a greater demand on police resources to discover and extract digital evidence. This device will vastly improve V/NOD's quality of service with respect to investigations involving electronic data.

This report reflects a representative sampling of our policing activities for the 1 st

quarter of 2015.

GENERAL INVESTIGATION SECTION (GIS):

Serious Crimes Unit:

The following report is a synopsis of some of the most recent investigations that the Vernon Serious

Crimes Unit (SCU) have received and investigated.

Possession & Accessing Child Porn – 2015-02153:

In February 2015 SCU received information from BC Integrated Child Exploitation unit in regards to an IP address accessing and possessing child pornography in the Vernon area. A search warrant was authorized to search the residence belonging to the IP address and child pornography was located on devices seized from the residence. The suspect in this investigation is deceased prior to judicial process starting and this file has been concluded.

Sexual Exploitation of Youth – 2015-02214:

Page 6 of 103

ELECTORAL AREA ADVISORY COMMITTEE - REGULAR AGENDA

May 7, 2015 -Item C.1

Child Sexual Assault – 2015-02884:

In February 2015 SCU investigated sexual interference of a four year old girl by her thirteen year old cousin. Charges were recommended with request for extra-judicial measures in the form of a sanction.

Intimidation of Justice System Participant – 2015-04129:

In January and February 2015 SCU investigated two persons who are currently before the courts in relation to a home invasion committed in 2014 where two victims were assaulted with a weapon. Police discovered that the victims had been receiving threatening text messages from the suspect, the content of which is believed to have been intended to compel the victims to not cooperate with the police and court process. Additional charges for intimidation of a justice system participant are being sought.

Trafficking Cocaine & Heroin (No Case) – 2015-06244:

In March 2015 members of SCU observed two drug transactions take place with the occupants of a vehicle in the downtown core. SCU members conducted a stop and observed containers containing $600 of cocaine and heroin packaged for individual sale in plain view. Investigators could not establish which vehicle occupant had knowledge/control of the drugs which were subsequently seized for destruction without charges being pursued. File is concluded.

Ongoing Major Case Updates:

Mischief Endangering Life & Attempted Murder – 2014-17169:

SCU is actively investigating the shooting that occurred in the City of Vernon in August 2014.

Significant unit resources have been committed to this incident which is being investigated utilizing Major Case Management Principles.

Homicide – 1983-9783:

SCU is reviewing and investigating a 1980’s homicide. Significant unit resources have been committed to this investigation which is utilizing Major Case Management Principles.

Assistance to Other Units/Investigations:

Assistance to Series of Heroin Overdoses:

In January 2015 SCU was requested to review files associated to possible Heroin Fentanyl OD’s with the purpose of determining if there was any criminality associated with either of the sudden deaths (2014-28046 & 2015-163), and which by virtue of this tasking included examination of other overdose related files (2015-120, 2015-124, 2015-147, 2015-199 & 2015-219). With information learned with respect to the sudden death circumstances on these files there was no evidence discovered that would support charges for a criminal offence however notifications through the media were pursued for public awareness.

Criminal Negligence Causing Bodily Harm/Fail to Remain - 2014-26249:

From December 2014 to March 2015 members of the SCU have provided significant investigative assistance and guidance to a General Duty (GD) investigation into a motor vehicle incident which left a Vernon woman with a permanent spinal injury. The suspect fled the scene and securing evidence was a significant undertaking. GD maintains conduct of the file and responsibility for other ongoing investigative tasks. Charges were approved for criminal negligence causing bodily harm and fail to remain and the suspect remains in custody.

NORTH RURAL GENERAL INVESTIGATION SECTION (GIS):

Update: Pedestrian Fatal/Hit & Run - Enderby 2012

Provincial GIS recently began following up on this matter as several new witnesses came to light.

To date two “after the fact” witnesses have been located and interviewed. The results of those interviews have generated additional investigative leads. It is unknown at this time if these leads will move this matter forward to a successful resolution.

Update: Trinity Valley Road Meth Lab - Enderby 2014

Provincial GIS completed all necessary documentation and made submissions to Public

Prosecution Service Canada (PPSC). As a result of this being a lengthy and complex investigation prosecutorial conduct was transferred to PPSC in Vancouver and assigned to a prosecutor with experience in these matters. Charges of production of and possession for the purposes of trafficking have been approved against the two principle suspects as well as numerous firearms related offences.

Update: Stabbing - Noble Canyon Rd 2014

Provincial GIS successfully identified key witnesses to this stabbing and a previous stabbing involving the same suspect and victim. As a result charges were approved against a male and female, who were both subsequently arrested and released on bail. The trial date is anticipated to be scheduled in the near future.

Illicit Marijuana Grow Operation - Falkland 2015

Provincial GIS recently investigated a sophisticated indoor grow operation in the Falkland area.

This investigation resulted in the seizure of a quantity of plants, marihuana processed and packaged for sale and the equipment used to facilitate this illegal grow operation. As a result charges are pending against six persons, two of which have former links to organized crime.

Suspicious Fire - B.X. 2015

Provincial GIS assisted uniformed members with an investigation into a suspicious fire at a rental home in the B.X. area. This involved canvassing the surrounding rural neighborhood for witnesses and coordinating the arson scene exam utilizing police, B.X Fire Department and B.C.

Safety Authority resources. At this time the cause of the fire remains undetermined with the possibility of an electrical issue being considered.

NORTH OKANAGAN SIGNIFICANT INVESTIGATIONS/INCIDENTS:

• In January of this year members of the Vernon North Okanagan Rural General Investigation

Section (GIS) began an investigation into a suspected grow operation on a large rural property near Falkland. A search warrant was obtained and on Feb 26 th

, with the assistance of South East

District Emergency Response Team, our officers executed a search warrant on the property.

Search teams arrested four people who were on the property at the time and assisted in the preliminary search of all the buildings. A large grow operation was located in the metal workshop and over 700 plants were seized. Four people were arrested without incident and taken into custody. Two gave addresses from the lower mainland and two from Nelson. File 15-1949 refers.

• On January 21 members of the Vernon Prolific Offender team assisted North Rural Members with conducting surveillance on a male target in Enderby. The male was arrested for breach of a conditional sentence order and upon arrest was found to be in possession of cocaine. The male was returned to jail for breaching the conditional sentence order and also charged with the drug offence. File 15-1379 refers.

• On February 24 members responded to a bomb threat at MV Beattie School when staff discovered writing on the bathroom wall indicating a bomb was in the school. The school was evacuated and the police dog attended to search the school. It was determined that an 11 year old student had written the threat. As the offender was age 11 charges were not pursued and the school will determine the appropriate disciplinary action. File 15-3686 refers.

• On February 16, while investigating a cocaine trafficker in Enderby, police conducted a search at an Enderby residence and recovered six high value road and racing bicycles, bear spray and a replica handgun along with other drug related items. The accused was arrested and held in custody awaiting court. File 15-3142 refers.

• On February 18 members assisted the building inspector and Enderby Fire department when notice was served to the occupants of a condemned building. When ensuring all occupants were clear from the building members discovered 454 grams marihuana, 125 grams magic mushrooms and a LSD lab. The building was secured by police until the RCMP Clandestine Lab Team could attend from Surrey. The building was searched and the Team removed the chemicals and items used in the production of LSD. All items removed were incinerated to reduce the risk of introducing an invasive species (mold spores) to the area. File 15-3265 refers.

Page 10 of 103

ELECTORAL AREA ADVISORY COMMITTEE - REGULAR AGENDA

May 7, 2015 -Item C.1

• On March 24 The Ministry of Environment reported several drums of chemicals had been dumped in a gravel pit on Douglas Lake Rd. Members attended and identified a large dump of chemicals suspected to be production waste from a clandestine lab. The Clandestine Lab Team attended from Surrey, examined the site and obtained samples for testing. Thirty-three (33) 205 liter barrels of chemicals used in the production of synthetic drugs were removed from the site.

An investigation continues to determine the source and persons responsible. The cost to manage an illegal dump site of this size exceeds $65,000. File 15-574.

POLICE DOG SERVICES (PDS):

• Police Dog Services continues to provide a 20 hour per day on duty or on call coverage, with operational availability as required when a team is not on duty during those hours. The Vernon

PDS Unit has experienced a minor medical issue which has removed one PDS member from operational duty, however that is expected to change with a return to light duties in mid-April and potentially full duties by May.

RESERVISTS:

• This past quarter our reservists have been required to comply with mandatory breaks in services as per their contracts. As such their duties have been limited but in general we have had two reservists provide dedicated Traffic Enforcement within the City of Vernon and Coldstream jurisdictions, as well as the Provincial jurisdiction as funding permitted.

• One of our Reservists is now in the process of commencing firearms training for members who require any additional assistance in this regard. As well we will be commencing our annual qualifications in late May which will provide annual re-certifications for all operational members.

This reservist, as well as another on strength to this detachment, will also engage summer Boat

Enforcement Patrols under the South East District initiative however no direction has been received on this program as of yet.

• One of our Reservists primarily involved in summer seasonal enforcement activities and our local liaison with SAR and PDS teams has accepted another role at this detachment. Due to the departure of our cell block manager this Reservist has agreed to fulfill these duties in the absence of the cell block manager on an interim basis until a permanent replacement can be identified.

• All three of our active reservists have been and continue to be available to assist regular detachment personnel in community event policing as well as support activities such as scene security during more serious or complex investigations.

At this time they have 42 applicants from the north and south Okanagan. They have excellent support from Kelowna Detachment this year as all their School Liaison Officers have been assisting with processing their own students.

May 7, 2015 -Item C.1

• An SCU investigator trained in Digital Computer Field Triages (DCFT) completed ten electronic device examinations for NOK Detachment investigations.

HUMAN RESOURCES:

• There has been some significant movement within our human resources. Most obvious is the retirement of Supt. Reg Burgess, who is currently on retirement leave and officially retires on

June 3 rd

, 2015. At this time no permanent replacement has been identified, and Insp. Jim

McNamara is the interim OIC on an acting capacity.

• Other movement has included the announced retirement of Sgt. Derrick Donovan in late April, and Cpl. Henry Proce in early July. A replacement for Sgt. Donovan has been identified in Sgt.

Mike Moyer, who will be arriving mid-June. Cpl. Trevor Tribes will be assuming the Unit

Supervisor position at Lumby in May, allowing some transition between him and Cpl. Proce. The position vacated by Cpl. Tribes is under review and will be addressed in the near future.

• Cpl. Tory Romailler has been identified as the successful candidate assuming the watch commander functions on “A” watch, a move which sees him promoted to the rank Sgt. Backfilling

Tory’s position on our Targeted Enforcement Task Unit is Cpl. Dan Pollock and a replacement for

Dan on our Crime Reduction team has yet to be determined.

• Sgt. Robb Daly of Armstrong is the successful candidate in a promotional opportunity promoting him to S/Sgt. at the Kamloops Detachment. He departs to his new duties in May and will be replaced by Sgt. Kara Triance, currently Watch Commander of “C” Watch. Her replacement at

Vernon has yet to be identified.

• Arrivals have included Cst. Charles Battye, recently arrived from Kimberly detachment to “C”

Watch at Vernon. A long awaited transfer for Enderby was cancelled due to the inability of the incoming member to sell his old post residence. As such another member has been identified to transfer into the Enderby position, Cst. Donald Gunn, and we now await his arrival.

• We have not seen the departure of any members on transfer this past quarter but a number of members have been advised of transfer from Vernon/North Okanagan Detachment, anticipated departure over the following months, with replacements to be identified if/as appropriate.

• Cst. Jerrod Strebchuk has been transferred to Nelson Detachment and will be replaced by Cst.

Mark McCaulay from Nakusp Detachment.

• Cst. Josh Elvin has been transferred to Elk Valley Detachment and will be replaced by Cst. Tyler

Jackson, currently at the Armstrong detachment. Cst. Jackson will be replaced by Cst. Clayton

Twamley, inbound from Port Alice.

• At present Vernon North Okanagan Detachment continues to have 101 established positions however some adjustments are anticipated which may see a reduction in this number, related to the Provincial GIS and one First Nation establishments and potentially in relation to the FIS structure.

Funded Levels:

For the quarter ending March 31 st

, 2015 our detachment billed at 48.91 members for the City of Vernon and 5.81 for the District of Coldstream.

Suicidal behaviour is complex. Risk factors vary with age, gender and ethnic group and may even change over time. The risk factors for suicide frequently occur in combination.

The taking of one’s own life tragically demonstrates the psychological pain experienced by a person who has lost all hope, someone who is no longer able to cope with day to day activities, who feels there is no solution to their problem(s), a person who wants to end the pain by ending their life.

Untreated depression is one of the most common reasons for suicide. A depressive disorder is an illness that involves the whole body, mood and thoughts. It affects the way a person feels about oneself and the way one thinks about things – depression is treatable.

The question is not – is suicide preventable but rather how do we go about helping an individual who is feeling suicidal? How do we encourage them to reach out? What do we do when a person does reach out or we notice something is not quite right? Please join us for a conversation on suicide.

Everyone welcome ~ No Cost ~ Refreshments

It's a great day, states Vernon-Monashee MLA Eric Foster, when you can take money from the bad guys and give it to the good guys.

Which is what Foster had the pleasure of announcing Monday morning at the Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP detachment.

Three groups will receive five grants totalling more than $40,000 from the province ' s civil forfeiture program to help with their own crime reduction programs.

"This is money that was gained by illegal means," said Foster of the program developed in Victoria. "Worthwhile and needy organizations make app l ications and the grants are doled out around the province."

The local RCMP detachment will receive $13,278.98 to help purchase new crime-fighting equipment.

The RCMP Victim Services receives a $5,000 grant to help w i th training.

"It will be used for training in the community, training for professionals that work with victims of domestic violence and where it relates to sexual violence," said Anita Eiiander, manager of the Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP Victim

Services.

The Restorative Justice Society of North Okanagan will receive $6,633 to work with victim services to create a best practices guide in working with victims of crime.

The Vernon Women's Transition House Society will receive two grants totalling more than $17,000.

One grant, for $9,688, will be used for a new North Okanagan Child and Youth Advocacy Centre, which is the result of a partnersh ip that incl udes the RCMP, victim services, min istry of children and family development,

Family Resource Centre, North Okanagan Youth and Family Services Society.

"This will help create a centre where children that have been abused, neglected or witnessed a crime can come and be Interviewed by child welfare authorities and receive counselling and other support services," said Brooke

Mclardy, programs director for the Vernon Women's Transition House Society, which hopes to hear in a couple of weeks about pilot funding confirmation centre.

Discussions are also ongoing with the landlord of a stand-alone site for the proposed centre.

The society also received $7,370 for training to enhance women's safety .

"The grants are a huge success," said Mclardy.

"It allows us to take the proceed s from crime and put that into training for our staff and other community agencies and front-line workers so we can support victims in our community."

Foster said the grants are administered on a project specific ba s is .

REGIONAL DISTRICT of

NORTH OKANAGAN

REPORT

File No.: 3046.01.04

TO:

FROM:

Electoral Area Advisory Committee

Planning Department

DATE: April 16, 2015

SUBJECT

:

Shuswap River VORR Public Consultation Strategy

RECOMMENDATION:

That it be recommended to the Board of Directors, the Shuswap River Vessel Operating Restriction

Regulations Public Consultation Strategy be endorsed.

DISCUSSION:

At the July 16, 2014 regular meeting of the Board, a resolution was passed to direct staff to initiate the process to apply for boating regulations through Transport Canada on the Shuswap River. This action was one of the four priority strategies identified for implementation of the Shuswap River Watershed

Sustainability Plan (SRWSP) in 2014 and 2015.

Staff have since coordinated the formation of a partnership of interested organizations to explore

Vessel Operating Restriction Regulations (VORR) on the Shuswap River. The partnership is comprised of:

Regional District of North Okanagan Lower Shuswap Stewardship Society

Enderby and District Chamber of

Commerce – River Ambassadors

City of Enderby

Vernon Protective Services – Safe Communities

Unit

Enderby and District Service Commission

The BC Conservation Officer Service, Department of Fisheries and Oceans, Splatsin and Kingfisher

Interpretive Centre have all provided technical input on the proposed regulations and will continue to provide guidance as the process progresses.

Working with a Transport Canada representative, this partnership has developed a set of proposed regulations based on the recommendations from the SRWSP and a Public Consultation Strategy to seek feedback on the regulations and meet the consultation requirements of Transport Canada.

LEGAL/STATUTORY PROCEDURAL REQUIREMENTS:

VORR are the responsibility of Transport Canada and are established under the Canada Shipping

Act, 2001. Any level of government (federal, provincial, municipal and territorial government

Page 32 of 103

ELECTORAL AREA ADVISORY COMMITTEE - REGULAR AGENDA

May 7, 2015 -Item E.1

Shuswap River VORR Public Consultation Strategy

Report to EAAC – April 16th 2015 Page 2 authorities) can request federal government to restrict the use of all vessels on all bodies of water in

Canada. Regulations may help achieve safety, environmental or public interest objectives and may:

• prohibit all boats

• limit engine power or type of propulsion

• impose speed limits

• restrict towing activities on any sporting or recreational equipment including wake surfing

• prohibit a sporting, recreational or public event or activity

Within the SRWSP the following recommendations were made to address the impacts motorized boats are having on the Shuswap River:

• Develop a no wake zone between Mara Lake and Baxter Bridge (Trinity Valley Rd).

Develop a non-motorized watercraft zone between Baxter Bridge (Trinity Valley Rd) and Mabel

Lake and from Mabel Lake to Shuswap Falls.

Transport Canada Regulations do not include a “no-wake zone” regulation option. Therefore, in order to achieve a significant reduction in waves created by wakes the proposed regulations specify a vessel engine size restriction of 10 horse power in Zone 1. A speed restriction was also considered, however speed restrictions are difficult to enforce. They require specialized equipment and training for enforcement agencies and that enforcement staff are on-site when an infraction is occurring.

Reporting is also difficult as a bystander cannot prove the speed being travelled.

The VORR being proposed for the Shuswap River are as follows:

Zone 1:

Zone 2:

Zone 3:

From the mouth of the Lower Shuswap River at Mara Lake to the Baxter Bridge (Trinity

Valley Rd) – vessel engine size limit of 10 Horse power.

Lower Shuswap River from the Baxter Bridge (Trinity Valley Rd) upstream to the eastern

(upstream) end of Skookumchuck Rapids Park – no motorized vessels.

From the mouth of Mid Shuswap River at Mabel Lake South upstream to the Shuswap

Falls – no motorized vessels.

A critical component of pursuing the proposed regulations through Transport Canada is consultation with the broader community. Consultation is required to foster awareness of the problems identified with respect to boating on the Shuswap River and the regulations being proposed, as well as to gain an understanding of the level of support that exists for their application. Transport Canada does not provide a prescriptive consultation process that must be followed, however the importance of broad consultation is emphasized in the application information and development of a consultation strategy is recommended.

The Shuswap River VORR Public Consultation Strategy has been developed to guide consultation activities with respect to the Shuswap River VORR and is attached as additional information along with an information sheet and survey which are two of the proposed consultation tools. A range of consultation activities are proposed to ensure that a wide spectrum of users and the broader community are informed of the issues and provided with opportunity to offer feedback on the proposed regulations. The consultation activities will be undertaken during the spring and summer of

2015.

Documentation of the consultation process is a critical component of an application to Transport

Canada for VORR as is described in the following application checklist. The checklist includes actions

2. Existing Programs and Events

Utilizing existing programs and events can be a useful way of capturing community members and river users not included in the list above. A number of programs already exist that may provide such an opportunity. The following will be explored as potential consultation mechanisms:

Shuswap River Ambassadors – the Shuswap River Ambassadors program has been running for five years and operates over the summer months. The ambassadors circulate through launch sites on the Lower Shuswap River, providing information to recreational users regarding safe and responsible use of the river. In 2014 the Ambassadors communicated with 5811 users.

The Conservation Officer Service provides an enhanced service on the Shuswap River and lakes within the North Okanagan over the summer months that is funded by the RDNO. Conservation

Officers could distribute information pertaining to the boating regulations when in contact with users throughout the summer of 2015.

Creel Survey. Splatsin currently has the contract with the Department of Fisheries and Oceans to undertake a Creel Survey for Mabel Lake. The surveyor could distribute information pertaining to the boating regulations when in contact with fisherman.

Local Events – a number of local events are situated on or near the Shuswap River and would provide a venue where an information booth could be set up. Events include the Shuswap River

Awareness Day, Enderby Arts Festival, No Wake Flotilla (July) and Rivers Day (September), hosted by the Enderby and District Chamber of Commerce and Grindrod Days (August).

• Other events as identified

3. Posting Information at Public Sites

Static information at opportune locations can provide information to a wide group of users including locals, tourists and commercial interests. The following will be explored as potential sites for information:

Posters at boat and hand launch sites directing readers to the website for more information and to complete the survey. Launch sites include Mara Provincial Park boat launch, Enderby Boat launch, Mabel Lake boat launches, Sugar Lake boat launch, Tuey Park, Belvidere Park, Baxter

Bridge hand launch site (Trinity Valley Rd), Eby hand launch site, Cooke Creek Recreation Site,

Dales hand launch site and Brandts hand launch site.

Posters at local community notice boards directing readers to the website for more information and to complete the survey. Possible sites include Mara food liner, Grindrod store, Enderby,

Mabel Lake store, Lumby, Community Halls (Mabel Lake Hall, Kingfisher Hall, Riverside Hall,

Grindrod Hall, Mara Hall).

4. Public Meeting/Open House

Two public open houses, one in Enderby and one in the Lumby area, will be held in June to introduce the issues, provide reasoning for why the regulations are being proposed and to outline the proposed regulations. An open house format will be used with an introductory presentation at the beginning.

May 7, 2015 -Item E.1

Attendees will have an opportunity to view maps of the proposed regulations, provide feedback on the impact they may have and provide an indication of their level of support.

In September a public open house is planned to provide a summary of the consultation response received and to outline next steps.

5. Surveys

A survey will be developed to collect quantifiable responses to the proposed boating regulations and will include questions that pertain to the respondents’ current use of the river, their level of agreement with the proposed regulations and where they live. The survey will be available to complete on-line as well as in paper form and will be distributed through all direct contact with stakeholders and interested parties and where practical, through the other consultation opportunities described above.

6. Previous Consultation Activities

The RDNO coordinated the development of the Shuswap River Watershed Sustainability Plan (SRWSP) from 2011 to 2014. During this process, concerns with respect to motorized boating on the Shuswap

River were repeatedly raised during stakeholder meetings, public open houses and workshops.

Recreation was a strong theme in the comments and feedback received and as a result was the sole focus of one the three SRWSP working groups. The working group discussions and recommendations resulted in a Recreation section in the final plan. It is from strategies in this section that the recommendations for boating regulations originate. During the final stages of public consultation, where key components of the plan were presented for feedback and indications of priority sought for specific strategies, the strategies that corresponded to the implementation of boating regulations were overwhelmingly identified as high priority by attendees.

Timing

Consultation activities will be undertaken during the spring and summer of 2015. A preliminary schedule is outlined below.

• Direct contact with identified stakeholders and interested parties

• Existing programs and events

• Posting Information at Public Sites

• Public Meeting(s)

May 2015

June– September 2015

June – August 2015

• Surveys

Summary

May – August 2015

Public consultation is a critical component in the process to develop and apply for boating regulations

(Vessel Operating Restriction Regulations as referred to by Transport Canada). This Public Consultation

Strategy is designed to provide numerous opportunities to consult with the broader community on the concerns identified with motorized boating on the Shuswap River and to solicit feedback and determine the level of support for the proposed boating regulations.

Vessel Operating Restriction Regulations on the Shuswap River

A partnership of interested organizations, coordinated by the Regional District of North Okanagan (RDNO), is seeking feedback on possible Vessel Operating Restriction Regulations

River. The partnership includes:

(boating regulations) for the Shuswap

Regional District of North Okanagan

• Enderby and District Chamber of

Commerce – River Ambassadors

• City of Enderby

Lower Shuswap Stewardship Society

• Vernon Protective Services – Safe Communities

Unit

Enderby and District Service Commission

Federal and provincial government departments have provided technical input on the proposed regulations and will continue to provide guidance as the process progresses.

The decision to pursue boating regulations for the Shuswap River has come about due to numerous occasions where community groups and residents have raised concerns with respect to the impacts of motorized vessels on the Shuswap River over the past 20 years. These concerns were captured and reinforced during the development of the Shuswap River Watershed Sustainability Plan (SRWSP) which was endorsed by the RDNO

Board of Directors in April 2014.

The development of the SRWSP was a three and a half year process, informed by a large number of community members through working groups and open houses. One of the priority issues that were identified during the plan development was the impact of motorized boats on the Shuswap River with respect to recreational safety, conflict between users, bank erosion and disturbance to critical salmon spawning grounds and other fish and wildlife. Also of interest was the improvement of non-motorized recreational opportunities. In response to these concerns, strategies were developed in the SRWSP that identify pursuing boating regulations for the purpose of:

• reducing erosion of the river’s banks, protecting riparian areas and reducing disturbance to spawning salmon, nesting birds and other riparian/water-based wildlife...(SRWSP Strategy 9.7)

• improving non-motorized recreational opportunities...( SRWSP Strategy 10.1)

• resolving the current conflict on the Lower and Middle Shuswap River between the motorized boating community and local residents, and non-motorized recreation users…( SRWSP Strategy 12.3)

• establishing a non-motorized, water-based recreation area on the Lower and Middle Shuswap

River……..( SRWSP Strategy 13.3)

• increasing the safety of water-based recreation for users on the Lower and Middle Shuswap River in particular as it pertains to powered water craft on the faster moving waters above Trinity Valley Bridge

(Baxter Bridge) and the heavily congested waters below...( SRWSP Strategy 15.3)

In order to fulfill these strategies the following solutions were suggested in the SRWSP:

Develop a no wake zone between Mara Lake and Baxter Bridge (Trinity Valley Rd).

Develop a non-motorized watercraft zone between Baxter Bridge (Trinity Valley Rd) and Mabel Lake and from Mabel Lake to Shuswap Falls.

ELECTORAL AREA ADVISORY COMMITTEE - REGULAR AGENDA

May 7, 2015 -Item E.1

Transport Canada

Vessel operating restriction regulations are the responsibility of Transport Canada and are established under the

Canada Shipping Act, 2001. Any level of government (federal, provincial, municipal and territorial government authorities) can request federal government to restrict the use of all vessels on all bodies of water in Canada.

Regulations may help achieve safety, environmental or public interest objectives and may:

• prohibit all boats

limit engine power or type of propulsion

• impose speed limits

• restrict towing activities on any sporting or recreational equipment including wake surfing

• prohibit a sporting, recreational or public event or activity

Transport Canada Regulations do not include a “no-wake zone” regulation option. Therefore, in order to achieve a significant reduction in waves created by wakes the proposed regulations specify a vessel engine size restriction of 10 horse power in Zone 1. A speed restriction was also considered, however speed restrictions are difficult to enforce. They require specialized equipment and training for enforcement agencies and that enforcement staff are on-site when an infraction is occurring. Reporting is also difficult as a bystander cannot prove the speed being travelled.

The Eagle River has an existing speed restriction which is difficult for enforcement agencies to enforce due to geography and time. Unless an officer is already in the area, it takes a long time to respond and the offender will likely be gone.

Proposed Boating Regulations for the Shuswap River

The Boating Regulations being proposed for the Shuswap River are as follows:

Zone 1:

Zone 2:

From the mouth of the Lower Shuswap River at Mara Lake to the Baxter Bridge (Trinity Valley Rd)

– vessel engine size limit of 10 Horse power.

Lower Shuswap River from the Baxter Bridge (Trinity Valley Rd) upstream to the eastern

(upstream) end of Skookumchuck Rapids Park – no motorized vessels.

Zone 3:

From the mouth of Mid Shuswap River at Mabel Lake South upstream to the Shuswap Falls – no motorized vessels.

The three regulation zones are shown in the maps in the attached survey

Consultation Opportunities

A number of consultation opportunities will be undertaken to obtain feedback on the proposed boating regulations including direct contact with known stakeholders and interested parties, distribution of information at local events, posting information at public sites, public meetings and a survey. The survey is included with this information sheet.

Please take the opportunity to provide your feedback on the boating regulations by completing the survey and returning it to the RDNO offices. The survey can also be completed on line at www.rdno.ca/shuswap , where there is additional information regarding the SRWSP.

We thank you in advance for your input on this important management issue on the Shuswap River.

Shuswap River Vessel Operating Restriction Regulations Survey

The Regional District of North Okanagan (RDNO), Vernon Protective Services – Safe Communities Unit, Lower

Shuswap Stewardship Society, Enderby and District Service Commission, Enderby and District Chamber of

Commerce and the City of Enderby are partners in an initiative to explore Vessel Operating Restriction

Regulations (boating regulations) on the Shuswap River.

The intent of the Shuswap River boating regulations is to:

• improve recreational safety

• reduce disturbance to salmon spawning grounds and other fish and wildlife

• reduce conflict between users

• reduce bank erosion

• improve opportunities for non-motorized recreation.

The decision to pursue boating regulations for the Shuswap River has come about due to numerous occasions where community groups and residents have raised concerns with respect to the impacts of motorized vessels on the Shuswap River over the past 20 years. These concerns were captured and reinforced during the development of the Shuswap River Watershed Sustainability Plan (SRWSP) which was endorsed by the RDNO

Board of Directors in April 2014. The Shuswap River is a candidate for boating regulations due to a number of factors including, very important salmon spawning grounds, high non-motorized recreational usage involving upwards of 1,000 users on a single day and a high level of conflict between the motorized boating community and other user groups and residents.

The Boating Regulations being proposed for the Shuswap River are as follows:

The three regulation zones are shown on the maps over-page.

We are currently seeking feedback on the proposed boating regulations. Please provide your input by completing this survey. All responses will remain anonymous and will contribute to determining support for the proposed boating regulations.

Please mail or drop off completed surveys by August 28 th

, 2015 at the Regional District of North Okanagan offices, 9848 Aberdeen Road, Coldstream, BC, V1B 2K9, Fax: 250-550-3701

or complete the survey on-line at www.rdno.ca/shuswap.

Electoral Area "F" OCP Review Survey Results

RECOMMENDATION:

That the report dated April 22, 2015 regarding the survey results of Phase I of the Electoral Area “F”

Official Community Plan review be received for information.

DISCUSSION:

The current Electoral Area “F” Official Community Plan was adopted in 2005. On August 20, 2014 the

Board of Directors endorsed the Terms of Reference for the review and update of the Electoral Area

“F” Official Community Plan. Funding for the review in the amount of $77,600.00 from the Community

Works Fund was confirmed at the September 17, 2014 regular meeting of the Board.

The Phase I mail out and online survey was initiated in January 2015 and open for residents to provide feedback until February 27, 2015. In total 1,904 surveys were mailed out and 311 surveys were received by the deadline. Of those surveys returned, 77 were online submissions and the remaining 234 were sent via return to sender, Canada Post mail. Staff are of the opinion that the prepaid postage (return to sender mail) was successful in garnering a higher response rate (16%) than usual for this type of a process. An additional 6 surveys were returned after the deadline. These late surveys were not complied with the main data input of the 311 surveys, however the comments and rankings provided have been reviewed and taken into consideration.

The survey results attached to this document provide a snapshot of the feedback received from area residents and property owners. A summary and presentation on the comments received related to the open ended questions (Questions 1, 2, 4, 6, 7, 8) will be provided at the May Electoral Area

Advisory Committee meeting as a detailed analysis of this data had not been undertaken in time to meet the agenda deadline. An Interim Report will also be developed in June 2015 identifying trends in Electoral Area “F” as it relates to: Population; Age Distribution; Seasonal Residents; Housing;

Building; Employment; Agricultural Land Reserve; Geography; Environmental Values & Habitats;

Protected Areas & Parks; Current Land Use Designations; and Vacant Land Inventory. The Interim

Report will also provide a summary and analysis on the feedback received through the public open houses held in February 2015, mail-out survey results (attached to this report) and focus group discussions which are to be held near the end of May or early June.

RECOMMENDATION:

That the report dated April 17, 2015 from the Planning Department regarding the Community Works

Fund be received for information.

DISCUSSION:

Background

In 2005, the New Deal for Cities and Communities was established to transfer a portion of Federal

Gas Tax funds to local governments. This program provided funding through various programs for nine years, ending in 2013/14. In 2013, the Federal Government committed to continuing to distribute

Gas Tax funds to local governments and a renewed agreement came into effect on April 1 st

2014.

This agreement continues until March 31 st

, 2024 and will be reviewed by March 31 st

, 2018. One of the mechanisms used to distribute Federal Gas Tax funds to local governments in British Columbia is the Community Works Fund (CWF).

Community Works Fund

The CWF provides allocated funding, based on population, twice annually to local governments for eligible projects as set out in the renewed Gas Tax agreement. The first five years of CWF allocations for the RDNO are estimated as follows:

B

The attached table provides a breakdown of Electoral Area CWF allocation and expenditure for 2014 and a projected allocation for 2015 2018. Projected administrative and staff costs are also included for 2015 onwards, but allocated project costs are not. Therefore, only expenditure on approved projects is reflected, not the full allocation. This information has been presented to provide the

Electoral Area Directors with an indication of available funds from the CWF for the next four years.

SUMMARY:

The RDNO receives Federal Gas Tax funds through the CWF in biannual installments based on the population of the Electoral Areas. Information on 2014 allocations and expenditures , and projections for 2015 onwards , have been provided as an information resource for Directors.

31, 2015, there is a need for amendments to the current RDNO Building Bylaw. In addition, several changes to Provincial legislation and RDNO bylaws have occurred since the Building Bylaw was last reviewed in 2002/2003. There are also changes recommended as a result of the Building Department

Review Project conducted in 2011 and the Service Review Committee in 2012/2013. The following list indicates the modifications proposed in draft Building Bylaw No. 2670, 2015:

• Remove all references to the member municipalities of City of Armstrong, City of Enderby,

Township of Spallumcheen and Village of Lumby;

• Discontinue the Authorization to Construct process in Electoral Areas “D” and “E” for single family dwellings

• Discontinue the Authorization to Construct process in Electoral Areas “D”, “E” and “F” for

Manufactured Homes;

• Eliminate the provisions for Coordinating Registered Professionals Authorizations to

Construct;

• Reduce fees to 80% of the building permit fee where a Coordinating Registered Professional is involved and revise the Section for Coordinating Registered Professional’s to reflect more of a monitoring role;

• Add to the scope and general exemptions section to exempt accessory and agricultural buildings from requiring Building Permits when they are located in rural zones, less than 55 m

2 in size, no higher than one storey or 6 metres in height, do not contain plumbing and meet the requirements of the Zoning Bylaw;

• Amend the scope and general exemptions section by removing park model recreation units

(so they will now require a building permit);

May 7, 2015 -Item E.4

New Building Bylaw No. 2670, 2015

Report to Electoral Area Advisory Committee – March 31, 2015 Page 2

• Reduce the Number of Inspections for accessory and agricultural buildings from 5 to 3

(Footings and Forms / Framing / Final Occupancy) for buildings up to 110 m

2 in size, and do not contain plumbing;

• Amend references to Notice on Title sections of the Community Charter (rather than the Local

Government Act);

• Remove the application forms as forming part of the bylaw;

• Amend the On-Site Water System requirements to be consistent with the Subdivision

Servicing Bylaw requirements for well capacity;

• Amend the numbering and formatting to be more consistent with other RDNO bylaws; and

• Amend definitions to be consistent with other RDNO bylaws.

Proposed Amendments: Governance Changes

The proposed new Building Bylaw will only be in effect for the Electoral Areas of the RDNO. As of

January 1, 2016, all member municipalities will no longer be part of the RDNO Building Inspection

Service and will have their own Building Bylaw.

Recommendation:

Remove all references to the member municipalities of City of Armstrong, City of Enderby,

Township of Spallumcheen and Village of Lumby

Proposed Amendments: Authorizations to Construct / Sections 1200 to 1206 of Building Bylaw No.

1747, 2003

Authorizations to Construct are essentially a “siting and use” permit to ensure construction conforms with the provisions of the Zoning Bylaw, including permitted use and setbacks from property lines.

Compliance with the RDNO Building Bylaw and the BC Building Code are not considered by RDNO staff and the owners are solely responsible for ensuring construction meets BC Building Code requirements. In addition, consideration of OCP policy, including Development Permit guidelines are also not reviewed. The RDNO is the only Regional District in BC that allows “Authorizations to

Construct”. The Islands Trust, which has different legislative abilities than Regional Districts as the

Islands Trust Act provides authority for siting and use permits for some of the Gulf Islands.

This option is not well understood by the community and is often misconstrued as not requiring any permits/approvals in certain areas or for types of buildings, resulting in buildings being built in noncompliance to the Building Bylaw and Zoning Bylaw. Authorizations to Construct are currently permitted as follows:

• For Single Family Dwellings to a maximum floor area of 185 m

2

and Rural Accessory Buildings within Electoral Areas "D" and "E”;

• For Manufactured homes within Electoral Areas "D", "E" and "F";

• Where a Coordinating Registered Professional is engaged within the City of Armstrong, the

City of Enderby, the Village of Lumby, the Township of Spallumcheen and Electoral Areas "D" or "E".

There is no specific authority in the Local Government Act for the RDNO to allow for Authorizations to

Construct, but the RDNO has allowed these since 2004. The table below outlines the numbers since it was introduced.

Summary of the numbers:

• 294 Authorizations to Construct or about 6% of the 4908 total applications handled by the

Building Department since January 1, 2004

• Of the 294 AC’s, 73 or 25% utilized Coordinating Registered Professionals (CRP’s)

• Of the 73 CRP’s, 62 or 85% were within the 4 member municipalities

• 85 (29%) of the total AC’s were for single family dwellings

• 74 (87%) of the AC’s for SFD’s were located in Electoral Areas “D” and “E”

• 11 (13%) of the AC’s for SFD’s were for Manufactured Homes in Electoral Area “F”

• The majority of AC’s have been for rural accessory buildings and farm buildings

Advantages of Authorizations to Construct

There are some advantages of the Authorizations to Construct process such as reduced “red tape” for lower value buildings and quicker “approvals”, while still allowing for limited implementation of local zoning provisions (type, size, setbacks, height, etc.). It also reduces construction costs associated with some buildings by approximately 1.1 to 1.3%

plus $109.00 (the cost of the Building Permit and application fee.)

Building Permit Fees are calculated at $13 per $1,000 of construction value for construction under $500,000;

$12 per $1,000 of construction value for construction between $500,000 to $1,000,000; and $11 per $1,000 of construction value for construction over $1,000,000.

New Building Bylaw No. 2670, 2015

Report to Electoral Area Advisory Committee – March 31, 2015 Page 4

Disadvantages of Authorizations to Construct

There are varying legal opinions on the use of Authorizations to Construct and the potential for problems associated with them. Although there are some differences in opinion, at the very least, there are more concerns than where the full building permit is required. These concerns include:

• By issuing an Authorization to Construct there may be public expectation that this constitutes a permit and that the RDNO has "approved" the building. With this in mind, there is concern that owners may subsequently sell their properties in circumstances where they make a representation that all construction on the property has been "authorized" by the Regional

District, and leaving the impression that building permits were issued and so forth. Even though the “buyer beware” principle applies, this may ultimately leave subsequent purchasers with complaints against the Regional District which will require resources, including staff time and legal expenses to address.

• There is a lack of understanding in the community as to what an Authorization to Construct is and when it is applicable or required. This results in many cases of illegal construction that requires enforcement resources after the fact.

• Buildings that do not have the benefit of a local government inspection requirement may face greater scrutiny from home warranty providers and lenders.

• There is no mechanism to ensure that construction follows the BC Building Code or that the building is safe to occupy as no occupancy permit is issued.

In addition to the issues mentioned above, the further disadvantage is one of a financial nature. As building permit fees are not collected, the Regional District does not receive 1.1 to 1.3% of the value of construction from new buildings or additions that utilize Authorizations to Construct.

While staff have not undertaken a detailed financial analysis, a conservative estimate of the loss of revenue is between $25,000 and $40,000 in any given year (single family dwellings alone bring in between $2,000 and $3,000 each).

As part of the Building Department Review Project in 2011, it was recommended that changes be considered for the practice of “Authorizations to Construct”.

Recommendation:

Discontinue the Authorization to Construct process in Electoral Areas “D” and “E” for single

family dwellings

Discontinue the Authorization to Construct process in Electoral Areas “D”, “E” and “F” for

Manufactured Homes;

If the participants would like to continue the Authorizations to Construct process for single family dwellings, as an alternative, residential Authorizations to Construct should only be considered with additional requirements for a Land Title Act Section 219 Restrictive Covenant being registered on the title as outlined above.

Proposed Amendments: Use of Registered Professionals for Authorizations to Construct / Section

1207 to 1209 of Building Bylaw No. 1747, 2003

Section 1207 of Building Bylaw No. 1747, 2003 allows for the use of an Authorization to Construct together with the use of a Coordinating Registered Professional (CRP) without having to obtain a

Building Permit; and therefore, without having the construction inspected by the RDNO. The fee for a

CRP Authorization to Construct is 80% of what the building permit fee would have been.

Page 59 of 103

ELECTORAL AREA ADVISORY COMMITTEE - REGULAR AGENDA

May 7, 2015 -Item E.4

New Building Bylaw No. 2670, 2015

Report to Electoral Area Advisory Committee – March 31, 2015 Page 5

Registered Professional Authorizations to Construct are currently permitted for all types of buildings if the subject parcel is located within the:

• City of Armstrong,

• City of Enderby,

• Village of Lumby,

• Township of Spallumcheen, or

• Electoral Areas “D” or “E” of the Regional District;

Advantages of Coordinating Registered Professionals for Authorizations to Construct

An advantage of a CRP for Authorizations to Construct is that for a regular Authorization to Construct, there are no inspections and for an Authorization to Construct with the assistance of a CRP, there is a professional overseeing the construction, hopefully ensuring quality construction meeting the BC

Building Code. The same advantages of quicker “approvals” and less “red tape” are also relevant, but the owners costs will be higher as a result of Professional involvement.

Disadvantages of Coordinating Registered Professionals for Authorizations to Construct

• Where Registered Professionals are used, they may not be submitting the appropriate “Letters of Assurance” to the RDNO and this attracts liability to the RDNO.

• Where there is a Registered Professional involved, they do not always represent all the necessary Registered Professional disciplines. Once again, this increases the risk to the

RDNO.

• The CRPs rarely “close the loop” with respect to providing final reports on the building and no occupancy approval is provided.

• Authorizations to Construct using CRPs are problematic as there is no way to tell if the CRP is conducting inspections and if they are being conducted in the proper manner.

These changes should be accompanied by reduction to the fees associated with Coordinating

Registered Professional Building Permits which will remain in the Bylaw as a sound legal option to

Building Inspection as outlined below.

Recommendation:

Eliminate the provisions for Coordinating Registered Professionals Authorizations to Construct

Proposed Amendment: Use of Registered Professionals for Building Permits

There are varying practices around the province when it comes to the role of the local government when Registered Professionals are responsible for the construction of a building. When a building permit is taken out by a Coordinating Registered Professional (CRP), the current RDNO practice is to provide a level of building inspection. Although the RDNO relies heavily on the Registered

Professionals, the current RDNO activities for these types of projects could be construed as inspections and unnecessarily attracting liability (in fact, inspection reports are used).

To avoid or to minimize the level of legal exposure for these types of projects, the legal advice suggests that the local government provide a monitoring service only. Any observations that are noted by the building inspector on site visits should be reported to the CRP and the owner on a

"monitoring form" as compared to an inspection form. Also, when the permit is issued, it should clearly state that the CRP and the owner are completely responsible for ensuring that the building is constructed in accordance with the Building Code and Building Bylaw. These amendments have been proposed in the new Building Bylaw.

May 7, 2015 -Item E.4

New Building Bylaw No. 2670, 2015

Report to Electoral Area Advisory Committee – March 31, 2015 Page 6

The current bylaw provides for a fee reduction of 5%, up to $500.00, where a registered professional is utilized during the Building Permit process. This does not reflect the reduction in services provided by the RDNO for these buildings. If there is not a meaningful reduction there is a greater likelihood that, should a legal case arise on such a building, it could be viewed that the RDNO should have done more for that fee and the RDNO could be held liable. To acknowledge the monitoring service versus the full inspection services, there should be a meaningful reduction in fees. This should be accomplished by undertaking an analysis of the RDNO time savings resulting from the work required of the registered professionals on sample typical projects.

Recommendation:

Reduce fees to 80% of the building permit fee where a Coordinating Registered Professional

is involved and revise the Section for Coordinating Registered Professional’s to reflect more of a monitoring role

Proposed Amendments: Exemptions

With the recommendation to eliminate the Authorization to Construct process from the new Building

Bylaw, including the CRP Authorizations to Construct, staff suggest that additional exemptions be added to the new Building Bylaw.

Recommendation:

Add to the scope and general exemptions section to exempt, accessory and agricultural

buildings from requiring Building Permits when they are located in rural zones, less than 55 m

2

in size, no higher than one storey or 6 metres in height, do not contain plumbing and meet the requirements of the Zoning Bylaw

Under the BC Building Code, building permits can be required for the installation of park model recreation units, currently park model recreation units are listed as a general exemption in the Building

Bylaw.

Recommendation:

Amend the scope and general exemptions section by removing park model recreation units

(which will now require a building permit)

Proposed Amendments: Reducing Number of Inspections

The Building Inspection Service Review Committee, in 2012/2013, expressed interest in examining the number of inspections that are currently required by RDNO Building Bylaw 1747, 2003. The number of inspections required by the current Building Bylaw is consistent with neighbouring jurisdictions with the exception of one electoral area in the Columbia Shuswap, which is mostly a seasonal community and the only area subject to building inspection in that region.

During discussions at the Building Inspection Service Review Committee meetings, there has been an interest expressed in examining the number of inspections required by the current Building Bylaw.

The intent of the examination is to determine if there is value in all of the inspections that are required and if there can be cost efficiencies achieved by reducing some types of inspections.

Staff have presented a combination of exemptions and a reduction in the number of inspections for accessory and agricultural buildings. Regardless of the above, it is important that the consequences of changes to the inspectional regime, especially those of residential occupancy be considered from a liability, financial and community perspective. As such, staff have proposed changes be included

Page 61 of 103

ELECTORAL AREA ADVISORY COMMITTEE - REGULAR AGENDA

May 7, 2015 -Item E.4

New Building Bylaw No. 2670, 2015

Report to Electoral Area Advisory Committee – March 31, 2015 Page 7 within the new Building Bylaw to reduce the number of inspections for accessory residential and agricultural buildings only as these buildings generally have a low occupancy.

If the RDNO wants to consider reducing inspections for other buildings, staff can bring forward a detailed report outlining an analysis and recommendations.

Recommendation:

Reduce the Number of Inspections for accessory and agricultural buildings from 5 to 3

(Footings and Forms / Framing / Final Occupancy) for buildings up to 110 m

2

in size, and do

not contain plumbing

The two inspections that would be eliminated for accessory and agricultural buildings that do not contain plumbing would be Foundation Forms and Insulation and Vapour Barrier.

Proposed Amendments: Housekeeping Items

In the current Building Bylaw, references to filing a Notice on Title in accordance with Local

Government Act Section 700(5) and removing a Notice in accordance with Section 701(1). Those

sections of the Local Government Act have since been repealed. Section 675 of the Local

Government Act indicates that Sections 55-58 of the Community Charter apply. For clarity purposes,

changing those references to the Community Charter would be beneficial.

Recommendation:

Amend references to Notice on Title sections of the Community Charter (rather than the Local

Government Act)

The application forms are currently part of the bylaw and therefore are unable to be amended without going through a bylaw amendment process. There is no legislative authority to have the application forms as part of the Building Bylaw and minor changes are often required to provide clarity, removing them from the bylaw will streamline the process of updating application forms.

Recommendation:

Remove the application forms as forming part of the bylaw

Recently the Regional District Subdivision Servicing Bylaw has been revised and the Regional District

Zoning Bylaw will be updated later in 2015, this is an opportune time to have consistency between the regulatory bylaws that are used on a daily basis by the Planning and Building Departments.

Currently in the Building Bylaw, the water quantity requirement for a water license is 2,000 litres per day; however, in the Subdivision Servicing Bylaw, the requirement is for 2,273 litres (500 Imperial

Gallons) per day, which is consistent with the maximum eligible quantity in the Water Act.

For well capacity requirements, the current standard is that the well must provide a minimum of 6,550 litres of water per day (1.00 Igal/min) per dwelling unit for all of the Electoral Areas. The Subdivision

Servicing Bylaw identifies different well capacity requirements for Electoral Areas “D” and “E”, where it is 2,273 litres of water per day (0.35 Igal/min).

Recommendation:

Amend the On-Site Water System requirements to be consistent with the Subdivision

Servicing Bylaw requirements for well capacity

Amend the numbering and formatting to be more consistent with other RDNO bylaws

Amend definitions to be consistent with other RDNO bylaws
