Union Bay Water bypass, Filter or Pressure Reducing Valve

We were walking on Sunday and noticed some construction at the bottom of McLeod Rd. We were not sure what the pipes, valves and the blue fittings were and sent a email to ‘h2oguy@union-bay.ca’ for an answer….Still waiting but when we find out we will update.

August 23rd 2019 , Just received an email from Danny McGill waterworks superintendent verifying that the piping and valves are a pressure reducing station.

Union Bay Improvement District Immaculate Consumption

August 15th, 2019 Improvement District meeting appeared on the Union Bay Improvement District web site in record time and the July 25th meeting miraculously appeared from lost to found.

Watched the videos of the meetings and was impressed with how well they were run. Well done Chair Healey.

The water works report commented on a resident having a water leak on the house side of the meter of hundreds of gallons a day. So I decided to get some answers.
