The NBPCC uses chemically-enhanced primary treatment to remove up to 70% of BOD and up to 80% TSS. Sludge from NBPCC is trucked to the French Creek Pollution Control Centre where it undergoes further treatment to become Biosolids. Effluent is discharged via an outfall into the Strait of Georgia 450 m offshore at a depth of 39 m.
