Our wastewater processing and treatment plant receives and treats wastewater from our own customers, as well as that from third party wastewater companies. Our facility processes and treats various types of wastewater, including:
- Sewage sludge
- Food, oil & grease (FOG)
- Dairy whey
- Car wash sediment
- Catch basin sediment
- Lift stations
- Contaminated water (non-hazardous)
Solids removed through the processing and treatment of wastewater are used in the manufacturing of compost at our facility in Chemainus.
Effluent discharged from our wastewater facility meets or exceeds the regulatory requirements of the Capital Regional District (CRD) and is discharged under controlled flow rates to ensure continued optimal performance of the CRD’s wastewater system.
