Preliminary sewer work begins in the Uplands

The provincial government has mandated municipalities to separate the two types of effluents where a single pipe system is in use.

Survey work to install new pipes separating storm water from sanitary sewage in the Uplands will start in late May or early June, says David Marshall, Oak Bay’s director of engineering.

Letters were sent last week to affected residents, informing them the survey work will take 10 to 12 weeks. The findings, along with an estimated cost will be presented to council in the fall.

Residents will receive another letter once an engineering firm is hired to conduct the work, which is expected soon.

The provincial government has mandated municipalities to separate the two types of effluents where a single pipe system is in use.

Residents who would like more information on the work are asked to contact Marshall at 250-598-2042, local 7421.
