Enclosed is Public Works Manager N. Hoglund's Report to Council November 4, 2013 re Update on Harvey Intake Slide & Subsequent Actions Taken. Here is the Information Report.
With the recent heavy rains there is considerable discussion by our residents about the Village's water related infrastructure, and the current issues with Harvey Creek. At the November 4th Council meeting, Public Works Manager Nikii Hoglund presented the subject report and answered questions on issues related to the Harvey Creek intake slide and boil water advisory. Council asked that the Harvey Creek intake information be conveyed to the public via epost along with details of why there is a boil water advisory and the challenges the Village faces to lift it. This is hoped to be dispatched this week but with early election voting today, focus on completion of the Community Center for the Remembrance Day celebration, and attention to Harvey Creek the release may be delayed.
There has been a debris slide which has taken the Harvey Reservoir offline. Updates will be provided as they become available.
PLEASE LIMIT ALL WATER USAGE TO ABSOLUTE NECESSITY UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
At this time, there is NOT a boil water advisory in effect.
Thank you for your patience as crews work to address the issues.

Selected locations in upper and lower Kelvin Grove6. Selected locations in Brunswick Beach and Crystal Falls
Recently, a resident wrote to Council about traffic speeds along Bayview Road. The writer's concern is about how far above the speed limit some drivers are going along this road. Speeds were estimated at about 70km/hr in a 40km/hr stretch. I do not doubt the estimate as our family has owned our property on Bayview Road for the past 38years and I can concur with the writer's estimate of some driver's speeds. This is a long-going concern for a number of my neighbours as well.
My appeal to all of us is to keep our speeds down and make our Village a safe place in which to drive or walk. The school has now reopened and the sidewalk will be occupied with young people and their parents, friends or guardians. The speed limit around the school is 30km/hr so extra caution has already been built into our laws to provide safety for the little folks who cannot yet fully understand the risks associated with the interface of pedestrian and vehicle traffic.
