Bowser Village Centre Wastewater Project Discontinued

On March 26, 2019 the Regional District of Nanaimo (RDN) Board of Directors decided to discontinue the Bowser Village Centre Sewer Servicing project, due to schedule and cost constraints. The project was to include a collection system, wastewater treatment and effluent disposal for the Bowser Village Centre to support future growth in the Bowser Village area.

In March 2017, the RDN was awarded a joint Federal and Provincial Clean Water & Wastewater Fund of up to $7.6 million to provide the Bowser Village Centre with sanitary sewer servicing to support the community’s evolution into a “compact, complete community”. The grant was contingent on completing the project by March 31, 2020. Although the discontinuation has future infrastructure servicing implications for property owners, the RDN will continue to work with the property owners, provincial agencies and the community to support future growth in the Bowser Village in accordance with the Electoral Area H Official Community Plan (OCP).
