This small water system is located in CVRD Electoral Area E, and services 33 single family homes. The CVRD assumed responsibility for the management and operation of the Dogwood Ridge Water System in January 2010.
Source and Treatment
The water source consists of two groundwater wells. Water from the wells is pumped to a new water treatment building, where it is disinfected and stored in a new 50,000 gallon bolted steel reservoir. The water is then distributed through the new booster pump station.
