Residents can expect to learn more about how to care for your septic system at an upcoming open house in Peachland. It’s part of an open house being held to provide information and get feedback from residents on possible options and costs for expanding the district’s sewer system.
The district is in the process of updating the community’s Sewer Phasing Plan to help determine when sewer lines could be installed in certain neighbourhoods.
The information will also be used on applications for provincial and federal government grants that will partially fund the sewer projects – funding necessary for any sewer installation to move forward.
The open house is set for Wednesday, September 12, from 3 to 7 p.m. in council chambers at the Peachland Community Centre. You’ll be able to learn more about the Sewer Phasing Plan, possible options and costs and provide your feedback or ideas.
Plus, people on septic systems can find out how to protect their system and avoid costly problems with information from the Western Canada Onsite Wastewater Management Association.
Interior Health representatives will be on hand with information and a unique groundwater display that shows how water travels underground. And staff from the Regional District of Central Okanagan will be there to talk about where our sewer waste goes, how it’s treated at the Westside Regional Wastewater Treatment Facility and plans for expansion.
