Recent water quality tests have confirmed that turbidity levels have returned to acceptable levels.

upgrade and connection project to Cedar Heights for a total cost of $61,100 plus applicable taxes.

This project is jointly funded through the Area C Community Works Fund as well as a grant through the Clean Water and Wastewater Fund.

The Lakeview Water System was recently acquired by the CSRD and will be connected to the adjacent Cedar Heights water system, which is already owned and operated by the regional district.

The CSRD received a grant from the Clean Water and Wastewater Fund to facilitate the project.

Meanwhile, the regional district reminds users that sprinkling restrictions are in place for all CSRD water systems from May 15 to September 15 annually.
