Establishing sewer servicing for the Bowser Village Centre in order to support the community's evolution into a "compact, complete community" is supported by the Bowser Village Centre Plan (2010)
and RDN Rural Village Centre Study (2013)
. A Federal Gas Tax Grant funded wastewater servicing study for the area was initiated in 2014 with engineering consultant Stantec and is currently in its final stages. In March 2017, the Bowser Village Wastewater project was awarded funding under the Clean Water and Wastewater Fund for 'Bowser Sewer Servicing' at a maximum federal/provincial contribution of $7,590,328. Urban Systems has been retained by the RDN to advise on the process to establish the Service Area and elector approval for borrowing for the construction of the Treatment Plant, Collection System and Outfall.
