Residents invited to Uplands sewer update

Oak Bay invites residents for an Uplands sewer separation project update meeting Feb. 2

  • Jan. 27, 2016 10:00 a.m.

Oak Bay invites residents for an Uplands sewer separation project update during a special committee of the whole meeting Feb. 2.

The meeting will share views, ideas, concerns and support in relation to six options being considered to separate the existing combined sanitary and stormwater sewer in the 190-hectare Uplands subdivision.

The provincial government, through its Municipal Wastewater Regulation, requires all B.C. communities with single-pipe infrastructure to take the appropriate action to separate stormwater flow from sanitary sewage flow.

A staff report, including a review of public input and survey responses, will be considered at this meeting by the committee.

The report will be available online at oakbay.ca as of today (Jan. 27). Those wishing to provide correspondence for the agenda can provide it to Corporate Services by 3 p.m. on Feb. 2. Correspondence can be submitted via email to mjones@oakbay.ca or hard copy to Municipal Hall, 2167 Oak Bay Ave., Victoria B.C., V8R 1G2.

 

The meeting is Tuesday, Feb. 2 at 7 p.m. at Monterey Recreation Centre, 1442 Monterey Ave.
