Regional Source Control Bylaw
The Regional Source Control program has been active region-wide since the adoption of the CRD’s Sewer Use Bylaw in August 1994. This bylaw serves as the main regulatory instrument for source control in sanitary sewer systems and applies to any discharge of waste into a sewer that is connected to a sewage facility operated by the CRD. The bylaw specifies the types of wastes that are either prohibited (Bylaw 2922 Schedule “A”) or restricted (Bylaw 2922 Schedule “B”) for discharge to sewer and the various conditions under which facilities must operate if they discharge waste into a sanitary sewer.
The program is designed to ensure that the bylaw and its associated policies and procedures are applied consistently, creating a level playing field for businesses and institutions throughout the Capital Region.
