Each treatment plant is issued an Operational Certificate by the BC Ministry of Environment. The Operational Certificate requires effluent released from the treatment plant to meet certain treatment standards.
Monthly reporting of effluent quality data is provided for each wastewater treatment plant:
A small amount of liquid waste is brought to wastewater treatment plants by truck, instead of through the regional sewer system. A summary of trucked liquid waste disposed of at the Iona Island, Annacis Island and Northwest Langley wastewater treatment plants is also provided monthly.
Metro Vancouver acknowledges that the region’s residents live, work, and learn on the shared territories of many Indigenous peoples, including 10 local First Nations: Katzie, Kwantlen, Kwikwetlem, Matsqui, Musqueam, Qayqayt, Semiahmoo, Squamish, Tsawwassen, and Tsleil-Waututh.
Metro Vancouver respects the diverse and distinct histories, languages, and cultures of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit, which collectively enrich our lives and the region.
