Moyie River to be tapped .1 million water plan in By NANCY MILES Special Correspondent CRANBROOK City council, with one dissenting alderman, has approved a million ex- penditure in 1973-74 on a new water source, the Moyie River. A 10-mile pipe is planned to Cranbrook. D i s t r i b lion im- provements will be made. The bylaw now has gone lo the inspector of municipalilies for the approval it requires be- fore a ratepayer referendum. In 1969 a million bylaw for urgent improvements to the present Gold Creek Joseph Creek-based system got a sharp veto from the inspector as "beyond the city's means." Council has given no explana- tion of its reasoning in going to the more costly project. Aid. Art Beresford alone went on record as opposing. Ratepayer defeat ot the Moyie project, allowing the in- spector approved referendum, would delay for six months, an alternative Gold Joseph Creek vote on a lower amount. Consulting engineering ser- vice in July, 1968, dealt mainly with Gold-Joseph improvements and the city has already bought lie proposed damsite tor this. "Attractive possibilities" is .he comment of the consullanls n 19G8 on the Moyie source but ts estimate (hen with pondage, necessary spillway and piping, was million. At that time its Gold-Joseph report Phase 1 at slightly over <2 million "as early as possible" vould have supplied a city up to 0.000 people. Phase 2 al S550.- 000, also as early as possible, voidd have added a treatment ystem to Ihe supply. In an emergency inlcrim elf liquidating bylaw for sup- plementary wells raised water rales 60 per cent, and will be paid off by next year. Actual operation was not sat- isfactory. The new bylaw would also be self-liquidating from user rates increasing from to a month in 1975, and lo in 1903. Area of the Moyie project is undeveloped and still outside real estate encroachmenl, while Joseph Gold Creek area up to the proposed site the city owns is already thick with develop- ments almost to the proposed damsile about three miles above the existing Joseph Creek reservoir.
