Greater Vernon Water Offers Open House Sessions

Posted Friday, September 5, 2014

This November 15th, the Regional District of North Okanagan (RDNO) will be asking Greater Vernon Water (GVW) service area electors whether they are in favour of borrowing $70 million to complete six priority projects outlined in the Master Water Plan (MWP). These priority projects have been selected and reviewed by a Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) comprised of engineers, water technologists and Chief Administrative Officers from the RDNO, City of Vernon and District of Coldstream, representatives from the agricultural community, Interior Health, and a Council representative from the District of Coldstream. These projects have been deemed necessary to meet the requirements of the BC Drinking Water Protection Act and provide water security for Greater Vernon Water customers well into the future.

To provide information on the Borrowing Referendum and the MWP priority projects, four open house sessions will be offered beginning in September. Please join RDNO staff at one of the following sessions:

SEPTEMBER 16   5:00PM TO 7:00PM   SCHUBERT CENTRE, VERNON
SEPTEMBER 29   5:00PM TO 7:00PM   WOMEN'S INSTITUTE HALL, COLDSTREAM
OCTOBER 7   5:00PM TO 7:00PM   REC CENTRE AUDITORIUM, VERNON
OCTOBER 28   5:00PM TO 7:00PM   RDNO BOARD ROOM, COLDSTREAM
