Wastewater, liquid waste, and sewage are terms for "used" water and the wastes that it carries. These are terms for what is flushed down the toilet or washed down the drain. The RDN operates four wastewater treatment facilities, 23 pump stations, and two septage receiving sites to transport and treat wastewater from more than 130,000 residents between Qualicum Beach and Duke Point.
The Liquid Waste Management Plan (LWMP) is the region's long-range plan to manage wastewater. A review of the LWMP is underway now. Visit the LWMP Amendment page to learn more and find out how you can Get Involved.
