6.7 Land Improvement Water required for land improvement aesthetic ponds shall be the volume of the pond to be created. All the requirements noted for storage development shall apply to for land improvement development where applicable.
6.8 Conservation Conservation purpose is the use and storage of water or the construction of works in and about a stream for the enhancement of fish or wildlife for non-profit purposes.
The requirements for storage development for dams and reservoirs developed to improve a wild foul or fish habitat shall apply where applicable.
Salmon enhancement proposals that would increase fish stocks in the stream channels will require the development of supporting storage to maintain required low flows.
All the requirements noted for storage development shall be required for conservation development where applicable.
Storage purpose is the impoundment of water, either on-stream or off-stream in a dugout or behind a dam. In the unlikely event that a large storage development (ie. for power, pulp & paper, large waterworks) is proposed a more specific supply versus demand and environmental impact assessment will be required.
The storage quantity required to support the smaller water demands associated with domestic, industrial, commercial and irrigation uses anticipated in this plan, shall be the volume of the water demand plus an additional allowance of 0.3 metres (1.0 foot) depth over the surface area of the storage reservoir for evaporation and other losses.
It is recommended that the applicant be required to submit a completed report form entitled "Dam and Reservoir Information Required in Support of a Water Licence Application for Storage Purpose (Schedule 2)" before the application be considered.
It is recommended that design plans must be submitted and accepted in writing before construction commences on any proposed dam over 3 m (10 ft) in height or on storage of 12 dam3 (10acft) or more.
It is recommended that the applicant must obtain written agreement, right-ofway or easement for works or flooding affecting lands other than his own.
Total storage (dead and live) will be licensed. Dead storage should be licensed as it will in most cases have some intrinsic value such as providing conservation of water for wildlife or aesthetic value.
Diversion of water into off-stream storage will be during the period November to March. All in-stream storage may be required to pass any stream flows during the period May to October.
6.10 Allocation Plan Revision The Denman and Hornby Islands Water Allocation Plan should be reviewed and updated on or before January 1999 (5 years).
