(April 9, 2020) Update on the Water Survey Results…

 

The response to the Crystal Lake Water Survey has been tremendous!!!

Thank you very much to the 106 people who have completed the Crystal Lake Water Survey. We’re getting close to half the properties at Crystal Lake. We really need as many responses as possible to give the best direction for the future of a Crystal Lake Water System.

We are needing one survey for each titled lot. If a survey hasn’t been completed for your property, please do so as soon as possible. It only takes about 10 minutes and your input is so important.

If you know of a family member, friend or neighbour who does not have access to the hamlet web site or Facebook and is not aware of the survey, please let them know so they can provide their thoughts. Maybe print the survey for them so they can complete it and mail it in. We are looking for input from all titled lots, not just those hooked up to the Community Water System.

Thank you for your input.

Crystal Lake Hamlet Board.

 

(April 3, 2020) Initial Water Survey Results…

To all Crystal Lake ratepayers:
 
Wow! The Crystal Lake Water Survey went live just a week ago and already 54 ratepayers have completed and submitted the Community Water Survey.  Thank you very much to those 54 who have responded!  Let’s keep the momentum going.
 
This is a reminder to those who have not yet been able to complete the survey, that we need your input, one survey per titled lot.  Please take the 10 minutes to complete and submit the survey.
 
 
If you know of a family member, friend or neighbour who does not have access to the hamlet web site or Facebook, please let them know it is so important for them to complete the survey.  Maybe print the survey for them so they can complete it and mail it in.  We are looking for input from all titled lots, not just those hooked up to the Community Water System.
 
With all of us practicing the “Stay at Home” directive, we now have a little time to spare. Thanks for your input and for helping others to share their thoughts.
 
Hope all of you and your family are well in this trying time.

A Community Water System Info meeting was held Tuesday, August 20, 2019.  50 Crystal Lake ratepayers and residents attended to learn about and discuss issues with the community water system and options for the future.  No decisions were made or intended, as further homework is required to develop more details on the various options.  Further communication and consultation will be made with all ratepayers and residents of Crystal Lake.  The presentation by Charles Goss, of WSP Consultants, is on the web site.  For any questions and comments, please submit via the CONTACT US tab on the web site.
 
Crystal Lake Public Consultation Meeting Aug 20, 2019

March 17, 2019. A new Notice to Crystal Lake Community Water System Subscribers has been posted on the web site.  This Notice impacts all current subscribers and users of the Community Water System.  We have been advised that due to the location of the wells’ proximity to Crystal Lake, our current water system may be impacted by water from the lake.  The terminology is Groundwater Under the Direct Influence of Surface Water (GUDI).  Presently we will not be able to operate the water system as potable (drinking) water until further studies are completed.  The Hamlet Board is proposing to operate the water system as a hygienic, non-potable system for 2019 until we receive further direction from the actual subscribers – those who use and pay for all system operations and costs.  This situation is evolving so updates will be posted as new information is gained.

Hygienic Water Use

Provision of water that is safe for human consumption as well as meeting regulatory requirements may place significant demands on the performance of existing waterworks systems.
