Liquid Waste Management Plan

Liquid Waste
Advisory Committee

The Liquid Waste Management Plan (LWMP) outlines our commitment to manage liquid resources in a manner that meets the goals and needs of our residents and environment now and into the future.

Why Does the RDN have a Liquid Waste Management Plan?

Laws regulating municipal wastewater management require that municipal wastewater treatment facilities provide a minimum of secondary treatment. These laws also recognize that it will take time for some treatment facilities to provide secondary treatment.

An approved LWMP authorizes the RDN to find community-driven and cost-effective solutions to protect public health and achieve a standard level of wastewater treatment over a reasonable timeframe.

The original LWMP was completed in 1997 and approved by the Minister of Environment, Lands and Parks (now Minister of Environment) in 1999. The Ministry of Environment requires that local governments review their LWMP every five to ten years to determine if an amendment is required. Our LWMP Amendment was submitted to the Minister of Environment in January 2014 and is under review. If approved, the Amendment will replace the original 1997 LWMP.

LWMP Amendment

Thank you to everyone who participated in the LWMP Amendment Public Consultation activities, which ran from July to December 2013. The Final LWMP Amendment includes revisions that considered feedback from the public.
