Looks Like Kensington Island Properties aka Union Bay Estates Want to Add to the Contamination Already Leaching Into Baynes Sound

DCIM100MEDIADJI_0736.JPG

Anyone surprised by this new development? Union Bay Estates has been discharging muddy construction runoff into the mouth of Hart/Washer Creek since at least Sept. 30, which is when the above pic was taken.

Does it surprise you that those in authority don’t seem concerned. Area A Director was copied on a letter regarding the discharge and responded with general answers about the coal hill remediation and completely ignored the discharge problem – completely ignored .

The same developer that wants you to trust them to dump 1875 cubic metres of sewage daily into Hart/Washer Creek safely.

The same developer who never bothered to obtain permits to clear the land north of McLeod Rd and never bothered to apply for a permit to use the cleared land as a gravel/sand pit until caught by an inspector of Mines.

Ya, that developer. The developer who doesn’t give a shit about Union Bay or those who reside here – imo.

The image below is page 14 from the Official Community Plan from the Comox Valley Regional District. Why isn’t the OCP being enforced? https://www.comoxvalleyrd.ca/sites/default/files/uploads/bylaws/337_rural_cv_ocp_consolidated_2018_0.pdf

The two and a half minute video below shows how far the muddy waters spread.

Here’s another photo from Nov. 22 showing the muddy water being drained through the concrete culvert.

“…McMahon said the area was a cesspool of contaminants that continued to leech (sic) into Baynes Sound.”

Kensington Island Properties aka Union Bay Estates Submitted Another Sewage Application

Follow up to this post: https://allthingsunionbay.com/2021/09/07/update-on-kensington-island-properties-aka-union-bay-estates-deficient-sewage-application-2/

The picture above shows the KIP pipe collecting data from Washer/Hart Creek. Notice that it is in the deepest spot under the train trestle where it’s like a bowl and really not an indicator of actual stream depth and flow since the areas on either side of the trestle are much higher meaning much more shallow than under the trestle.

Here’s a 36 second clip of the area under the trestle from July 31, 2021.

Update on Kensington Island Properties aka Union Bay Estates “Deficient” Sewage Application

Continuation from this post: https://allthingsunionbay.com/2021/08/26/update-on-kensington-island-properties-aka-union-bay-estates-deficient-sewage-application/

This image was posted on Facebook stating it is a lift station for the new development. Funny, the guy posting the picture turned off comments about this and yet allows a free for all and joins in when discussing people he views as a POS (piece of shit). When it comes to the developer, no one wants to hear concerns and wants to keep things positive. The gloves are off though for people they deem beneath them. Obviously, the new Sheriff and provider of information to visitors regarding the development, isn’t aware of the sewer application glitch. Details, who cares about details?

Where is it going to lift to, since the application started Feb. 2018 was determined to be ‘deficient’ and the developer must submit a complete final application. This was probably ordered a long time ago, prior to the application being found ‘deficient’.

As of today the application is still “Pending Customer”.

If you want information on the lift station locations and other diagrams, this is a link to a pdf, included in an FOI request, titled “UBE sanitary master plan review draft” Sept.2019 MOE2020 https://drive.google.com/file/d/1-doHM7f6O-TWwbwtj5HwnbJtl3CgbsqQ/view?usp=sharing Here is one of the diagrams. The resolution is poor, but able to read the legend on the diagram.

Update on Kensington Island Properties aka Union Bay Estates application to dump 1875 cubic metres of treated sewage DAILY into Hart/Washer Creek

Picture below taken a couple of days ago. Kip’s pipe is in the deepest part – notice how high the rocks are on the right. The creek has brought down a lot of rock over the winter and is more shallow.

Close up of Kip’s pipe gathering information to support dumping 1875 cubic metres of treated sewage daily into this small creek.

Answers from CVRD Regarding Sewage Grant Application, Union Bay Estates aka Kensington Island Properties Sewage Application and Gravel/sand Pit Application

I think we are screwed.

What criteria is used to approve the developer to use a specific area of the over 700 acres of land as a gravel pit?

Does the CVRD have a say in the location of the Gravel/Sand pit?

Update on the Sewage Grant application for Union Bay and Royston.

Does Kensington Island Properties sewage application to dump treated sewage into Hart/Washer Creek meet the conditions in the MDA?

Is the CVRD willing to own a system that dumps treated sewage into Hart/Washer Creek as set out in the MDA?

CVRD Zoom Meeting Update for Areas A, B and C Today at Noon

https://allthingsunionbay.com/2021/06/01/opportunity-to-ask-questions-of-cvrd-june-16-why-the-turnaround-on-the-kensington-island-properties-aka-union-bay-estates-mda-regarding-sewage/

Opportunity to ask questions.

These are the questions I submitted:

Typo – should read ‘willingly’

UPDATE: Video of the meeting. Didn’t get all my questions answered as some of those answering wandered off to things I didn’t ask, but have come away with more info. These meetings are so important and easy to attend and get answers from those making the decisions.

The first half hour is a presentation by each Area Director and the second half is questions.
