Cta Municipal Water Conditions

Water Conservation Guidelines recommended May 1 – October 31

Water Conservation Guidelines are recommended for all Municipal water systems. Please see the Water Conservation Page for the Stage recommended for each water system.

The Eagle Cliff water system services about 110 users in the Eagle Cliff neighbourhood. 

Water for the Eagle Cliff system is supplied by a deep groundwater well and an open surface reservoir. It is treated by  flow-paced injection of sodium hypochlorite into the water supply main with limited contact time and is UV disinfected. Turbidity is recorded and monitored regularly. The water is tested for chlorine residuals every day and samples are sent to Vancouver Coastal Health once a week.

Help us contact you quickly if we discover a leak

Bowen Island Municipality is currently dealing with leaks at some properties in Municipal water systems. We make every effort to contact the property owners, however in many cases we only have mailing addresses.

Please provide your contact information so that we can contact you by phone or e-mail if we discover high water usage on your water meter.

If BIM identifies a leak, every effort will be taken to contact the property owner. If the property owner cannot be contacted, water will be turned off at the property.

The annual water charge for Eagle Cliff is based on the average daily consumption for water used as measured by meter, during the period of June 1 to September 30:
