Central Sector Liquid Waste Management Planning
The Central Sector Liquid Waste Management Plan includes Duncan, North Cowichan, Cowichan Tribes, Area D-Cowichan Bay and Area E-Sahtlam/Glenora/Cowichan Station. CVRD staff are working to finalize an amendment to the Plan. This webpage will be updated as the project progresses. In the meantime, background information about the proposed amendment can be found below.
About the Amendment
The CVRD is proposing an amendment for the Plan that will recommend moving the existing treated effluent outfall from the Cowichan River to a suitable marine environment location in Satellite Channel. This change will ensure there is enough dilution to responsibly manage our community’s liquid waste over the long term.
The process for this amendment involved a range of different activities in 2015, such as the completion of a Stage 1 Environmental Impact Study and consultation with partners, stakeholder groups, and the public. Final reports will be posted below as they are completed.
Partners in this project include Cowichan Tribes, the City of Duncan, the Municipality of North Cowichan and the CVRD.
