Development Cost Charges - Charlie Lake Sewer System

August 13, 2014 - The PRRD is planning upgrades for the Charlie Lake Community Sewer System that will enable new connections to the system. The Board has directed PRRD staff to establish a Development Cost Charge (DCC) program and bylaw to ensure new development pays for its share of the costs associated with the upgrades.

DCCs are one-time fees that municipalities and regional districts choose to collect from new development at the time of subdivision or building permit to help pay for the cost of off-site infrastructure services that are needed to accommodate growth. Section 933 of the Local Government Act stipulates what types of services Local Governments may fund using DCC revenues. According to the legislation, DCCs may be used to help offset costs associated with the provision, construction, alteration or expansion of sewer mains, treatment plants and related infrastructure. The rates for the DCCs are justified in the Urban Systems Report.


Construction at the North Peace Regional Landfill

August 8, 2014 - The Peace River Regional District would like to inform the public of construction activities taking place on the North Peace Regional Landfill site in Fort St. John.

The Regional District will be completing construction of its Landfill Gas Capture Facility on the northwest section of the property. During the course of the construction, portions of the landfill will be exposed for brief periods to complete pipe work and faint garbage odours from the site may be detected in the immediate area. The excavation work is expected to run on/off until August 30th and the Regional District will be working with the construction group to minimize odour impacts.

The Peace River Regional District apologizes for any inconvenience and appreciates your
patience during the installation of the equipment required to capture landfill gas. If there are any questions, please contact the Solid Waste Department at 250-784-3200.


Peace Region Groundwater Study

July 29, 2014 - The Province of BC has been working closely with Simon Fraser University (SFU) on a project to improve the understanding of groundwater in the Peace River Regional District. The project hydrologist is seeking out residents in the PRRD to participate in the study to allow for the comparison of private wells. If you have a water well or a spring or know of someone who may be interested in participating in this study please see the letter for details of the project.
