Hagensborg Water Works Improvement District is a local authority established under the authority of the BC Local Government Act. Recently, HWID received grant funding for significant upgrades to the bulk of the water distribution system. A condition of receiving this funding is that the improvement district must be subsumed under, and become a new service of, Central Coast Regional District. See this recent newspaper article for more details.
More information will follow on the public process that will be used to determine whether sufficient constituent support exists to convert the service and accept the funding.
