Project Overview
The City of Revelstoke is continuing the Liquid Waste [Sewage] Management Plan (LWMP) process to provide clear guidance to address the long-term infrastructure needs to meet current environmental regulations both Federally and Provincially, while supporting the community as it expands.

To be fully transparent and inclusive through the process, we are providing general information, updates, and feedback opportunities as the project progresses.

Why Are We Doing This?
Environmental regulations have become more stringent and there is projected growth in the City requiring improvements to the wastewater treatment facility (WWTF). The City has already entered the LWMP process, and in 2008 completed Stage 1. Completing the final stages of the process will provide a clear plan for improving and expanding the City’s WWTF which is a high priority of Council and the community.

Community Engagement
Currently, we are in the process of forming a set of committees as guided by the Province following the Pre-Engagement Survey.

The committees that will be formed are as follows:

Steering Committee – filled by those personnel directly responsible for implementation (Director of Engineering and Finance)

Combined Public Advisory Committee and Technical Advisory Committee – filled by representatives from the community, City, and technical team.

The Pre-Engagement survey will be used to establish the best forms of communicating with the public and gaining feedback as the project progresses.

Pre-Engagement Survey // What We Heard Summary
A Pre-Engagement Survey was launched on the City's website and various social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter) and ran from December 15, 2020 to January 15, 2021. The results from the survey will be used to establish best forms of communicating with the public and gaining feedback as the project progresses.

Current Status

Proposed Plan - Lagoon Approach
The proposed plan consists of using the City’s existing WWTF and adding components to it that will both improve the quality of treated sewage to meet current Federal and Provincial requirements, and also expand it such that the City can continue to grow. The technical approach is shown below. It’s important to note treating sewage is a specialized field, and so it is anticipated the technical details of the WWTF may be outside the community’s general knowledge area. However, the City aims to be transparent and is including the information for the public.
