TO ALL WATER CUSTOMERS - REMOVAL OF WATER USE RESTRICTIONS

We want to thank everyone in the community for their cooperation and efforts in conserving water. We will be doing a post-event review to assess system improvements and improve redundancy for the future.

Bamfield Water Development Cost Charges

The Alberni-Clayoquot Regional District (ACRD) Board of Directors has approved an update to its Bamfield Water Development Cost Charges Bylaw.

The bylaw (Bylaw No. F1003) that outlines the Development Cost Charges applicable for the Bamfield Water System was passed by the board in 1996, and it has not been updated since. Given the expected growth in Bamfield, and the additional burden placed on the water system, the ACRD chose to update Bylaw No. F1003 and re-examine the current Development Cost Charges. The increase will cover the additional costs due to inflation and increased development pressures in the community and ensure that the charges adequately reflect the compounding effect that development can have on the water system.

To better understand the DCC and why this is being suggested, please read the 2022 Bamfield Water Development Cost Charges FAQ.
