Uplands Sewer Separation - Open House Schedule
Project Open House Announcements
The provincial government’s Municipal Wastewater Regulation requires all BC municipalities to have separate stormwater and sanitary sewer systems. Compliance with the provincial regulation is mandatory for the District of Oak Bay as it is for other jurisdictions in the province such as Burnaby, New Westminster and the City of Vancouver where single pipe infrastructure currently exists.
The Uplands area is the last remaining neighbourhood to have a single pipe system to accommodate both sanitary sewer and storm water flows. During heavy rainfall, the storm water volume exceeds the capacity of the system and a combination of storm water and raw sewage discharges into the ocean at the Rutland and Humber pump stations.
Six options have been identified to achieve mandatory compliance. Residents of Oak Bay are invited to attend an Open House to learn more about these options.
Open House dates include:
- Saturday November 7, 2015, 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM, in Activity Rooms 3 & 4 at the Neighbourhood Leanring Centre (Oak Bay High School, 2151 Cranmore Road, Victoria, BC).
- Tuesday November 10, 2015, 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM, in the Main Lounge - Cadboro Room at the Royal Victoria Yacht Club (3475 Ripon Road, Victoria BC).
- Friday November 20, 2015, 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM, in the Gym at the Uplands Campus (3461 Henderson Road, Victoria BC).
- Saturday November 21, 2015, 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM, in the Gym at the Uplands Campus (3461 Henderson Road, Victoria BC).
