Site Access – Pedestrian

Internal pedestrian walking paths have been provided throughout Bar W Resort. They include:

Offsite pedestrian walking path along the south side of Bay View Street and north along Range Road 204 is planned by the County. There are two access points to the Bar W Resort, one is located east of Island View Close and the other at the Primary Access point. Due to safety concerns non lease holders will not be allowed to walk through the Bar W Resort.

Lake Access

Lake access for boat launching will be directed to a location outside of the Bar W Resort property. Bar W Resort will work with other boat launch facilities in the area for access.

Sanitary Demand

Sanitary Demands calculated using Alberta Environment and Park’s Table 4.1 – Expected Volume of Sewage Per Day, Recreational Vehicle Park. Water demands calculated by using industry standard of 10% higher demand than sanitary demands.

Projected Sanitary Sewer Demands are noted as follows.

Water Demand

Projected Waster Demands are noted as follows.

There are no fire hydrants located within the Bar W Resort and therefore fire flow was not calculated. As noted earlier each stall will be required to provide their own water until a permanent connection to the water co-op can be made.

UFA Buildings

Two new buildings are planned to service the development and are noted as follows.

  1. Administration and Rural Convenience Store. 52’ x 36’, single storey.
  2. Maintenance Shop. 60’ x 42’, single story.
  3. Both buildings will be located near the main entrance and will be serviced separately from the RV development.
