The City of Revelstoke has released a response to numerous questions about the potential takeover of the Big Eddy Waterworks.

The 22 questions cover topics such as water metering, water rates, building permits, funding, constrcuction schedules, and more.

Big Eddy property owners are currently being petitioned to see if they want their water system to be taken over by the city in order to pay for upgrades required to bring it up to Interior Health water quality and city & BC Building code fire flow requirements.

The city is proposing major infrastructure upgrades, including construction of a new well, addition of a second reservoir and replacement of many pipes. The cost of the work is budgeted at $5.7 million, two-thirds of which is being paid for by the provincial and federal governments.

Big Eddy property owners have until February 5 to let the city know that they want the water system taken over. 50 per cent of property owners representing half the property value in the neighbourhood must sign the petition in favour of the takeover for it to take place.
