Public asked for input on sewage issues

Eastside Select Committee hosts discussion Saturday at Windsor Pavilion Sports Room

  • May. 7, 2015 2:00 p.m.

The Eastside Select Committee wants public input creating criteria for choosing sites and desired outcomes for wastewater treatment in the region.

“We are looking to hear from people on such issues as location of the treatment and resource recovery plant [and] values in terms of level of treatment,” said Oak Bay Mayor Nils Jensen. “Also people have ideas on the technology that should be considered. It’ll  be a chance for people to discuss and ask questions on where we are currently in the wastewater treatment [process].”

A local conversation Saturday will provide information about what wastewater treatment is, why it is important, and what residents can do to help find the best solution for Eastside communities of Oak Bay, Saanich and Victoria.

“There’s information on the CRD website and there will be an opportunity to ask questions at the meeting,” said Jensen. “Essentially it’s a community meeting to hear what view residents have on sewage treatment and the way forward.”

The discussion will be held in the Windsor Pavilion Sports Room on Saturday, May 9 from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m.

Registration is not required. For more information visit www.crd.bc.ca/Eastside.
