The Waste Water Treatment Plant Project is now fully underway. This $790,000 project will help ensure that the Village's wastewater effluent is being disposed of in an environmentally safe, responsible and effective manner as per Provincial and Federal legislation. The project is on target to be completed by February 28th, 2018. The Provincial and Federal Governments are providing $655,000 of the project costs through CWWF Program Grant Funding.
The Village's Water Reservoir Rehabilitation project is slated to be starting up in the next two months. Works will include the repair and rehabilitation of the Village's two water reservoirs, temporary ties-ins to the Beaver Valley Waterworks distribution system, and the setting up of a temporary water service for six residences on the very top of 12th Ave.
It is anticipated that the project will extend the useful lifespan of the water reservoirs by a further 15 to 35 years. During the project, the Montrose water distribution system will be connected to our neighboring Beaver Valley Waterworks distribution system. This will allow for each of the Village's water reservoirs to be sequentially taken out of service for needed upgrades and repairs.
The project is anticipated to last about 8 weeks and is expected to commence late February. Watering Restrictions will apply for the entire Village during that time. Residents will be advised as to project status, details, and potential temporary water disruptions early in the new year.
The Village would like to remind residents that under the Village’s Building Bylaws - Bylaw #633 and Amendment Bylaw #661, building permits are required for home and out-building structural related repairs, renovations, additions and roofing replacements. If you are not sure if your work project requires a permit, please contact the Village office at 250-367-7234 or the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary (RDKB), Building Department at: 250-368-0222.
The Village will be getting a new Electric Vehicle Charging station. The station will allow visitors to charge their vehicle and get a good look at the community and its amenities. The station will be located at the Village Office, and is being installed by the Accelerate Kootenay Program.
