    Re the Mashiter Run of River Project, why is the District paying for this study? Why would any research costs not be chargeable to the proponent?

    • Robin Jun 01, 2016

      The Mashiter RofR project is a community power project, and as such would be owned by us, Squamish residents, and the benefits would also come to us. It is not a typical IPP (independent power producer) project, so there is no profit in it for the people doing the study later on. I understand the initial research was done at no cost. For this study some of the site investigation work and preliminary engineering design work is quite costly - thus the $ allocation.

      Hi Nelson,
      Thanks for your comment. The Mashiter Run of River Project is a District-led project. Once operational, anticipated revenues from this project would likely subsidize water
      utility expenses. The project would be funded from the Water Utility Survey/Engineering Studies budget. Please let us know if you have any additional questions. Thanks!
