Lantzville sends cheque to Nanaimo as water agreement flows

City of Nanaimo receives $1.33 million from District of Lantzville

The District of Lantzville has signed and delivered a cheque worth more than a million dollars to the City of Nanaimo in exchange for water.

Ronald Campbell, the district’s chief administrative officer, said a cheque for $1.33 million was sent to the City of Nanaimo this month as a result of Lantzville’s decision to execute a water supply agreement between the municipalities, and that the deal has officially been triggered.

Under the terms of the water agreement, Nanaimo water will supply 225 Lantzville homes currently receiving municipal water while an additional 211 connections can be made to homes in upper Lantzville residents on private wells.

The district also constructed a 980-metre-long water pipeline from Lantzville Road to the border of Nanaimo for a cost of $633,360 in order to receive water from Nanaimo.

Campbell said he couldn’t comment on specific information about whether Nanaimo water was flowing to Lantzville yet, referring questions to Fred Spears, the district’s director of public works. Neither Spears nor Bill Sims, Nanaimo’s director of engineering and public works, could be reached for comment.
