Following is a list of report/documents that have been prepared regarding the Cowan Point project to date.


WATER

  1. Cowan Point/Josephine Lake Development, Review of Water Supply, 2010 Update, prepared by Kerr Wood Leidal Associates Ltd., dated August 2010. The report was prepared after the dam was constructed in 2007 to raise the lake. The report concludes that the current population-support capacity of Josephine Lake, given the parameters of the report and excluding water required for downstream water licence holders, is estimated to be 340 lots (average 2.6 people per lot), or 885 people. This conclusion is slightly less than the draft report in 2007 “due to the additional constraint of limiting the duration between full reservoir conditions and the slightly lower runoff coefficients.”
  2. DRAFT Cowan Point/Josephine Lake Development, Review of Water Supply, prepared by Kerr Wood Leidal Associates Ltd., dated December 2007. The draft report incorporated the as-constructed dam and the new spillway crest elevation, and concluded that the sustainable yield of Josephine Lake would support a population capacity of 360 lots (average 2.6 people per lot), or 937 people.
