CWAC to meet November 18

The Citizens Wastewater Advisory Committee (CWAC) is continuing its work in establishing a sewer alternative for the city of Blaine.

The next scheduled meeting is Tuesday, November 18 at 5:30 p.m. at city hall, and will focus on the review of results from the community open house held last month.

CWAC and city staff have agreed that transmitting wastewater flow to Surrey via the Greater Vancouver Regional District (GVRD) is the preferred solution, followed by the construction of a new plant on Marine Drive.

Issues of concern will be discussed, such as piping across Drayton Harbor and dealing with Canada via a contract. The CWAC committee has voiced concerns that sending sewage across the harbor � via piping � could potentially lead to environmental damage, should the piping break. As far as a contract with Canada, the committee has concerns about the exchange rate and its possible fluctuation, as well as the political aspects involved in the process.
