SSID Bylaw 123  As directed by the Drinking Water Officer, SSID trustees are in the process of writing a bylaw to protect the purity of aquifer water that is distributed from SSID's 2 wells to 165 properties in the District. It is now anticipated that the bylaw will be completed in spring 2018, and posted to this site at that time. Trustees will present it at the SSID Annual General Meeting in April.

Fire Insurance Upgrade 2017  Savary Island has been upgraded for fire insurance purposes. A review occurred in June 2017 by the Fire Underwriter Survey, and has resulted in a Public Fire Protection Classification upgrade from 10 to 8 for Savary Shores, and a Dwelling Protection Grade reclassification of Savary Shores from 5 to 4. Both ratings establish Savary Shores as “limited protection,” rather than “unprotected.” The rest of Savary Island, which has no hydrant system, is rated as PFPC 9 and DPG 4. The gradings might be further elevated if the fire department roster of full-time members were to increase to 15.
