Bylaws for pool fencing could be in place by end of year
The Cowichan Valley Regional District is taking the next step tonight at a board meeting to ensure that bylaws will soon be in place that regulate residential pool safety
The CVRD has been drafting bylaws since the BC coroner’s office released a report in August stating that swimming pools should have fencing around them following the tragic drowning death a toddler last summer.
The District’s deputy general manager of planning and development is Mike Tippett.
The CVRD has already implemented a bylaw in Cowichan Bay, the community were three-year-old Jordan Antonio Slottke resided in before he drowned in 2013.
