Aug. 9: Our recent announcement about reduction in reservoir levels has had a very positive effect, resulting in the levels gaining ground and we are now maintaining acceptable levels. Thank you for abiding by the stage 4 water restrictions. If we continue to stand by each other through this, we will be ok.

The water restrictions for Little Qualicum River Village are set right here in the village  in liaison with our water operator and his staff, and are unrelated to any other jurisdiction (such as the RDN). Our common  water system is a single large reservoir fed by 4 separate wells. One of those wells (well 13) has an arsenic count that is higher than what is allowed by Health Canada or Island Health, requiring water from that source to be blended and treated in order to keep the count leaving the reservoir down to acceptable levels.

 

Our current blending procedures keep the final count down well below the allowed maximum.

The proposed new well would increase the water supply without arsenic and help avoid using the water from Well 13 unless absolutely necessary.

 

Again thank you for taking this seriously. We will continue to keep you apprised of the situation and will reduce restriction levels as conditions allow.

Aug. 6: Our reservoirs are not keeping up with demands. In fact they are being depleted frighteningly, so at this rate we could be running dry.  We still are in a Stage 4 Water Restriction and expect to be for several more months unless we get some major, steady, and frequent rain soon and even then, maybe not until November at best.  Please  minimize your water usage as much as possible.

 

Aside from not watering plants and not washing vehicles, there are other ways to minimize wasting water.  For example, take showers, not baths. If showering, place a 5 gallon bucket in the corner of your shower stall. It can be filled with only two 3-minute showers. Toilets are also a big waster. Remember: If it's yellow, let it mellow; if it's brown, flush it down with your gray water. Only do laundry if you have a full load.

 

It's unlikely that we can get a new well in place at the storage unit area until the sheds all come down. Even then, it will take time.

 

Thanks for helping do your part.

Due to the current important issues, it is important that we communicate often and clearly with owners and residents. Broadcast email is our most effective tool for this, but we still have ~30% of owners who have not yet consented to accept email. Please download this email consent form and return it to vis4673@gmail.com so that we can add you to our distribution list. This applies only to owners and registered residents (those listed on a Form K) of course.
