In September, the CRD Board approved the recommendations put forward by the Core Area Wastewater Treatment Project Board (CAWTPB) which formed Amendment 11 of the Core Area Liquid Waste Management Plan (CALWMP).

This decision followed a report from the CAWTPB recommending a project proposal for wastewater treatment in the Core Area. The proposal was based on a Business Case which describes the project and implementation strategy and includes a detailed project budget.

The Ministry of Environment has approved Amendment 11 on the condition that a definitive plan for the beneficial reuse of biosolids be submitted to the Minister by December 3I, 2017. More information on the CALWMP can be found on the Current Plan page.

CAWTPB Recommendations and Business Case

Project Board Reports to the CRD Board

Due Diligence Panel

A three-member due diligence panel was established to review the methodology and conclusions of the Project Board.

  • R. Scott Hanna, MRM, RPBio, CEnvP
  • Troy D. Vassos, PhD, FEC, PEng
  • David Winter, PEng

The process to establish the panel was as follows: a pool of candidates was established, including names put forward by CRD Board members; from the pool, one member was nominated by the CRD Board and one by the Project Board; the third was nominated by those two nominees.
