Welcome to the Deep Bay Improvement District
The Deep Bay Improvement District (DBID) is a local government authority responsible for providing Waterworks and Fire Protection to properties within the district's boundaries.  The DBID was incorporated by Letters Patent, originally as the Deep Bay Waterworks District, on March 10, 1972. 
The DBID is governed by a board of elected trustees (elected by area property owners) one of whom acts as chair (as elected by the Board).  Our board members are all volunteers.
DBID Boundary Map is available here.

What's New...

September 21, 2018 - Residual Chlorine in DBID Water

Please note that Deep Bay Improvement District will be performing a "shock" chlorination beginning later today (Friday) and continuing over the weekend.   A low dose of chlorine will be introduced to the reservoir and as it works its way through the distribution system, users can expect to smell and taste this residual in the water.  Residual levels will be monitored and should clear from the system by Tuesday (September 25). 

This action is being conducted as a precaution after consultation with the Vancouver Island Health Authority due to some background counts in our regular water tests.

Health Link BC has drinking water chlorination facts that may address any concerns you may have at: .  Please note that this is an isolated incident and the chlorination is not permanent. 

Any updates will be provided if necessary.
