Dangerous road conditions can be created by the discharge of water, dirt and gravel from private property onto public roads. Culverts under private driveways and next to roads often need to be cleared at this time of year to make sure water can flow through. Property owners are responsible for controlling runoff onto roadways from their property, and for maintaining culverts.
To ensure safe travel on Bowen Island’s roads during heavy rainfall and to reduce the risk of flooding, we ask all property owners to control runoff and to keep culverts clear. Failure to do so may result in fining under the Bowen Island Municipality Traffic and Use of Streets Bylaw No. 133, 2005.
