Integrated Liquid Waste Management Plan

Metro Vancouver is updating the Integrated Liquid Waste and Resource Management Plan and we want to hear from you. The engagement process started in 2021 and is expected to take three years.

Learn more about the engagement

The Integrated Liquid Waste and Resource Management Plan identifies goals and key priorities for Metro Vancouver and its members. The plan takes an innovative approach to wastewater, which has traditionally been viewed as simply a waste product.

The plan has three key goals:

  • Protect public health and the environment
  • Use liquid waste as a resource
  • Ensure effective, affordable and collaborative management

The plan also commits Metro Vancouver to replacing the region’s two remaining primary wastewater treatment plants: the Lions Gate Wastewater Treatment Plant in West Vancouver and the Iona Island Wastewater Treatment Plant in Richmond.
