Lorne provided the following updates:

  • Water update: wells, storage any other options - Wells continue to produce avg of 30 gpm which is comfortable.  Given peak-summer water usage of up to 40,000 gal/day, pumps are running steady which creates other sustainability concerns.  Lorne was unable to provide the board with monthly & yearly water utilization rates for reference but will attempt to collect that information for the next board meeting.  Additional completion of well-screen cleaning to take place this fall.

  • Hydrant flushing - Will happen late September

  • Road update (Grading, Gravel & Dust Proofing) – Buena Vista has purchased a new and larger sized Road Grader.  Lorne will investigate the option of hiring their operator twice/year for a deeper more effective grading.  Lorne conducted a “harrow-drag” recently which helped address some washboard.

  • Shoreline access policy update – Lorne has received no response from Wayne.  Plan remains to move the West Gate out several hundred meters and look at moving the East Gate to a more appropriate location in line with Community boundary.  Lorne will also begin working on more formally establishing an East Side trail access as well as clear and widen the West Side trail access.  West Sunset residents will be notified in advance and matter will be placed on AGM Agenda.

  • IMUC updates - No updates as no recent meetings

  • Lagoon Fund Rebate update – No response from IMUC, Lorne will reach out to Victoria directly, but believes those funds have been repaid

  • Park – Stairs to shore - Steel stairs installed, project complete

  • Use of reclaimed asphalt - Seems to work well, will put more down in the few necessary spots that arise after rainfalls

  • Traffic Diversion at Sunset & McNab – New cement barricades are working well, the HVC team will manage them going forward and will ensure they are widened slightly to facilitate fully emergency responder vehicle access.  Additional “No Trespassing” signage has been ordered for installation

  • Update on Spring / Summer water testing results.
