Uplands sewers back to council

Oak Bay proposes solution to Capital Regional District

Oak Bay has sent a letter to the CRD detailing its proposed solution to fix the sewers in the Uplands.

The district has been mandated by the province to separate storm water and sanitary sewer flows in the area.

Proposed is a standard storm water system, which is gravity-based.

CRD will review the plan and then work with the provincial ministry of environment on approval. Once that has happened, along with additional technical work, Oak Bay will be able to host an open house detailing the plan.

“Right now we don’t have a lot of information or approvals in place,” said Mayor Nils Jensen. “We’ve been discussing this for a long time, but it really will depend on how long the CRD takes to assess it.”
