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 have been referred back 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

As part of continued planning for Core Area wastewater treatment, the City of Victoria and the Township of Esquimalt will facilitate 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 is hosting a community meeting Monday, April 25, 2016 to begin these conversations.

  • Information relating to the City of Victoria’s community engagement process can be found at
  • Questions relating to the City of Victoria process should be directed to the City of Victoria

The City of Victoria and Township of Esquimalt will report back to the CRD on the conditions in which they can support a wastewater treatment facility in their communities after the community engagement process is complete.

General questions and concerns relating to the Core Area Wastewater project should continue to be directed to CRD Wastewater Planning
