Victoria (finally) gets new sewage treatment plantApril 3, 2017 3:33 pm
After decades of delays – and a federal shove – work has started on the Capital Regional District’s (CRE) new sewage treatment plant.
“Isn’t that something? After all of these years, here we are,” said Victoria Mayor Lisa Helps, chair of the district’s sewage committee.
“Really, it’s a day that the region has been waiting for, for almost 30 years if you want to go back to the beginnings of the conversation.”
A progress report to CRD directors notes that the project timeline is driven by the need to comply with a federal mandate to be treating sewage by December 31, 2020.
