The upper and lower Kelvin Grove neighbourhoods in the Village of Lions Bay are serviced by a sanitary sewer network that culminates in a wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) that was constructed in 1981 on the waterfront of Howe Sound, at the Kelvin Grove Beach Park. The authority to discharge wastewater into the waters of Howe Sound is governed by the provincial Environmental Management Act. The Kelvin Grove WWTP operates under permit number 5188 (the “Permit”) which regulates the quantity and quality of the plant’s discharge.
A condition of this Permit requires the Municipality to submit and publish an annual report that includes information about the volume and quality of effluent being discharged, treatment plant operations and maintenance, and operator training and certification.
