Welcome to Ships Point and the Ships Point Improvement District website. If you are new to 'The Point' here is a special,
"Hi and Welcome to the Point".
The Ships Point Improvement District, or locally known SPID, provides water services, fire protection, and first responder services to the residents of the Point. We have just completed a three phase water systems improvement and water main replacement. Our water mains were all replaced with new 6 inch, 15 cm, pipes. In addition all of the fire hydrants are capable of delivering in excess of 4500 liters per minute. SPID has a back-up generater which enable us to deliver water for domestic consumption and fire protection.
Our water comes from wells, we have four wells. Two of our wells, #3 and #4, are drilled wells and the two older wells, #1 and #2, are dug wells. At this time, Well #1 is used for emergency backup purposes. All of our water is chlorinated to meet Vancouver Island Health Authourity requirements.
