As you may have seen in the newspaper (story in the Penticton Herald and Oliver Daily News), the WBID and RDOS are working together to resolve the water issue on the West Bench. A proposal is going before the provincial cabinet to disolve the WBID and pass responsiblity for water on the West Bench to the RDOS. The RDOS would then create a service area corresponding to the boundaries of the WBID.
Right now we are waiting for an Order-In-Council from the province to execute the transfer. Until then, the WBID remains responsible for water on the West Bench.
