Core Area Public Consultation Activities

Thank you for your feedback! The formal comment period is now closed for input on the Core Area Wastewater Treatment Planning. The CALWMC selected a two-plant treatment option as a base case to form a conditional amendment to the 2010 Liquid Waste Management Plan (LWMP).

The sites were referred to their respective councils to engage with their residents to discuss siting options and formulate guidelines around how facilities are integrated into neighbourhoods.

Municipal Community Engagement Process

The City of Victoria and the Township of Esquimalt facilitated a community engagement process around design guidelines and principles for the siting of a wastewater treatment facility in their respective communities.

The City of Victoria hosted a community meeting Monday, April 25, 2016 to begin these conversations and opened a survey to collect information from those who could not attend an in-person meeting. 

The Township of Esquimalt posted its Draft Guiding Principles for Wastewater Treatment that were endorsed for public input at Council’s May 2, 2016 meeting. The public was invited to provide input into these draft principles until May 10th, and was also invited to provide comment at the Township’s May 16, 2016 Council Meeting.
