TAX NOTICES are generally sent in early June and are due July 15. You may pay by mail to Box 133 Wasa BC V0B 2K0 or online through Interac eTransfer. To avoid internet fraud and to ensure your tax account is credited correctly, use the 4 digit number of your last invoice as the security answer. If your bank requires more than 4 digits, add the year of the tax you are paying; for example, if your invoice number is 1234, your security answer for 2021 will be: 12342021.
HOW TO COMPLETE AN INTERAC ETRANSFER
If you are unable to pay your tax because you are experiencing financial hardship related to the COVID crisis, or for any other reason, please contact us to discuss your situation and arrange a solution.
SPRING WATER WATCH
This is the time of year that trustees and residents begin to speculate about how quickly the spring freshet will be here and whether or not we will experience high water. Watch this spot over the next few weeks for regular updates re lake and river levels.
June 10 2021
Kootenay River down to 768.30 masl (metres above sea level) and
Wasa Lake up to 768.20 masl. When the river level drops lower than the lake level, then the rise in lake level will slow and stop.
This statistical model suggests lake water level in 2021 will reach 768.73 masl (+ or - 0.5 metre). With a 60% accuracy, lake level would range from 768.23 to 769.23. Last year's peak was 769.42 masl which is 69 cm higher than this year's estimate.
If you would like to compare 2021 to previous years, here are some some stats Water Levels 2013-2020
