The Columbia-Shuswap Regional District will be assuming control of the water system at the Galena Shores development at Galena Bay.
The CSRD will be entering into an agreement with Arrow Lake Development, the company behind Galena Shores.
While this is not the first time the CSRD has taken ownership of an existing water system, this is the first water system built to CSRD standards by a developer.
The water system has more than 50 connections and will be commissioned in the spring. The system is expected to cost users between $800 and $1,000 per year.
Galena Shores is a development of 62 lots located on Galena Bay.
