On our property, but right beside the VIHA neighbours, runs a ditch that drains a culvert that lies under the road from the subdivision above us. This has long been a trouble, needing lots of cleaning out, and made the entry road there somewhat dangerous. Thanks to a long effort by board members, and lots of meetings with VIHA and North Cowichan people, we have been able to contract the extending of the culvert (with culverting donated by North Cowichan) and fill in the ground above. Bravo Roger for taking on this project and organizing it all! 

We still need to complete the clearing of the ditch below that, but progress is being made. Above are some photos of the work in progress and complete, and below is the "before" shot.
