Sewer Treatment

Sewer Treatment Property Purchase Referendum


In order to take the next step in planning sewer treatment infrastructure for the municipality, Council is proposing the purchase of District Lot 18, located at 4603 Martynuik Road.  This approximately 78 acre property would become the site of a sewer treatment plant capable of covering the majority of the municipality, including Skidegate Landing.  The size of the property also opens the possibility of addressing some of our housing issues as lots could be subdivided and sold to individuals or developers.

Over the coming months the Village will be facilitating public outreach for the Sewer Treatment Property Purchase Referendum with a goal of having a high voter turnout where residents will make an informed decision based on accurate, unbiased information.  All background information and Council staff reports pertaining to this Referendum are posted here and will be updated from time to time.
