Until you become a senior you really don't know squat about water works advice.

At least the cross-contamination wasn't sewage going into drinking water pipes!

Just a reminder that while the short public tours of Sooke Reservoir watershed is happening this week, there are more public tours - long and short - coming up through month of June. Details: https://www.crd.bc.c...watershed-tours Also, CRD just posted Request for Quotation to demolish Goldstream Lake caretaker cabin as well as a small storage shed at Japan Gulch: https://www.crd.bc.c...ter-supply-area The caretaker cabin looks interesting - historical sort of thing. Imagine spending a snowy winter there around 1910 or so?

CRD calling for air detection services for the three major reservoir watershed areas. Interesting that Scope of Work includes "Observations of other suspicious activities in the Patrol Area shall be reported also...." and the contract goes to March 2019. Seems that after the summer drought season ends mid-September, the aircraft patrols will be mostly looking at the "other suspicious activities" until the end of the contract next March. The flight route skirts the fenced/gated Sooke and Goldstream water supply areas but does a loop through the Leech perhaps because access can't be denied easily and those "other suspicious activities" are expected to be more probable.

^ Why does the aircraft have to enter and exit the area from the NE?

Probably an assumption that the aircraft will be departing from YYJ

Sounds like a job a decent drone(s) could do.

Related info from the CRD's Invitation To Quote, including the image below of flight frequencies depending on fire conditions:
 
6 FLIGHT ROUTE AND PATROL AREA 
 
Attachment 1 shows the designated patrol route over the Patrol Area, assuming flights originate from Victoria International Airport. Following award of the contract, orientation flight(s) will be held with CRD staff  to  familiarize  pilots  and  spotters  to  the  route,  watershed  boundaries,  range  in  latitude  and  longitude  and  easily  identified  and  commonly  known  landmarks  to  ensure  accurate  and  meaningful  location reports. Patrol aircraft should fly at altitudes of 760 – 920 metres (2500 – 3000 ft) while over the Patrol Area. 
 

From Victoria International Airport, flights of the patrol route with a Cessna 172 required approximately 50 - 60 minutes to complete. This included time required for taxiing to the designated runway, takeoff, landing and taxiing to the terminal. This estimate does not include consideration of time required for pre-flight preparation or post-flight activities for the aircraft and/or crews.

 

The majority of flights will take place along the designated patrol route during times of High (DMC 41 – 90 or greater) and Extreme Fire Danger Class as set in the schedule outlined in Section 2.4, however alternate  routes  and  times  may  be  specified  following  events  such  as  lightning  storms.  In  these  instances, the CRD Representative will provide the Contractor with latitude and longitude coordinates and/or maps showing locations of possible lightning strikes and other details prior to the flight.

 

The Contractor will be expected to report all fires, smoke or other suspicious activity in the Patrol Area. Fires/smoke visible outside of the Patrol Area shall also be reported.

 

Following a report of a fire or other significant event or incident, the CRD Representative may request that the Contactor circle the area in order to provide updates on fire behavior and assist ground crews in locating the fire or incident. (page 16)

Looks like our reservoirs are in good shape and are still slightly higher than the 5 year average.
