Administrative history

In 1943 a Joint Committee of three members from the City and District Municipal Councils (Salmon Arm, B.C.) met to pursue obtaining costs and information on a joint water scheme. Mayor H.W. Scales, Alderman T.H. Elliott and Alderman W.K. Smith were delegates for the city. District representatives consisted of councillors Farmer, McMulland and Stoner.

In February 1944 a petition of 110 property owners was presented to the Salmon Arm District Council requesting that property owners from Broadview, North Canoe and other sections in the eastern part be serviced by the District water system. Three Broadview Water Board representatives present at the meeting were C. Darrell, J.G. Campbell and A.G. Laitinen.

It was recommended to the City and District Councils that all accumulated data be turned over to Mr. Wade, a consulting engineer from Kamloops. The committee met with C. Varcoe, engineer of the Water Rights Branch at Kamloops and M.L. Wade, a consulting engineer for the committee to discuss forming a water district. Wade was retained as engineer.

In 1946 the Broadview Water District resolved that the Broadview Waterworks District with all its rights and powers be transferred to the District Municipality of Salmon Arm with the proviso that the Broadview Waterworks District retain all its assets and profits until the new system is ready to supply water to its owners.

The Board continued until amalgamation of the village and district. In 1970 it was moved to dissolve the Salmon Arm Joint Water Board.
