Core Area Public Consultation Activities

Thank you for your feedback! Your input assisted in the creation of Amendment 11 of the Core Area Liquid Waste Management Plan (CALWMP) which responds to the needs of the region. This Amended plan has been conditionally approved by the Ministry of Environment. To learn more about this plan please go to the Current Plan page

In the coming months we will develop a comprehensive stakeholder and community engagement program to share details of the plan. The program will address the wastewater treatment plant and surrounding Esquimalt neighbourhoods and Department of National Defence community; the conveyance system (including pump stations at Clover Point and the attenuation tank) and neighbourhoods in Victoria, Saanich and the Juan de Fuca Electoral Area; and the residual solids treatment plant at Hartland landfill.

If you are interested in learning more about the public input which helped inform the current plan please see the Wastewater Document Archive for all documents relating to the 2014-2016 public consultation.

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.
