The CRD, in cooperation with local municipalities, electoral areas and industry, work together to develop local services to manage sewage infrastructure and treatment, stormwater infrastructure and septic systems in our region. These programs and services are aimed at protecting human health, local streams, creeks, the ocean and our environment. The programs and services primarily focus on education and environmental monitoring however, when necessary, enforcement tools are also available. These programs and services support both residents and industries in the region.
Programs related to management and impact stormwater and wastewater have regulatory requirements under the various permits, registrations, operational certificates, bylaws and liquid waste management plans that reflect requirements under various provincial and federal regulations. The CRD works with our regulators to ensure programs meet all regulatory requirements and that additional scientific research is done as necessary.
