Millstream Water System Sevice Application

Millstream is a small residential community located approximately 3.5 km north of the District of Ucluelet. The area was originally developed by a logging contractor to provide accommodation for employees and their families. The existing water system was constructed between July and October in 1969. The type of pipe used was asbestos cement (A.C.), which was the current technology at the time. The original wood reservoir was replaced with a metal reservoir in the early 1990's. A contracted water operator runs the day to day operations of the Millstream Community Water System. The water operator is certified through the Environmental Operator Certificate Program (EOCP) to operate small water systems.

System overview:

o Water Source: Two shallow dug wells, 4.1 and 3.6 meters
o Treatment: none
o Disinfection: Chlorine
o Reservoir: Bolted steel, 656 m3
o Service connections: 50
o Length of mains: 980 m of 100mm
o Water main material: Asbestos Cement (AC)
o Average Daily Flow: 34.7 cu. meters

The water mains are mostly asbestos cement and are subject to radial fractures and softening over time. In the spring of 2014 the replacement of some of the water mains are scheduled for Lee Street, Mavis Avenue and Albion Crescent. In conjunction with the watermain replacement will be the installation of additional fire hydrants.

The reservoir is scheduled to be drawn down for a thorough inspection and cleaning in 2014. A connection to the District of Ucluelet's water system has been approved and was engineered in 2013. The construction is scheduled to commence in the spring of 2014. This connection will enable the community to be supplied with water during maintenance procedures or in drought.
