Swan Lake sewer process moves ahead

Consultants have begun the scope of work to explore options for waste water recovery for the Swan Lake commercial corridor,

All hands were in as partners in a prooposed sewer treatment service met on the shores of Swan Lake.

Engineering consultants have begun the scope of work to explore options for waste water recovery for the Swan Lake commercial corridor, the south Spallumcheen industrial area and portions of the Okanagan Indian Band.

“This partnership provides an opportunity to protect Swan Lake and its surrounding wetlands,” said Janice Brown, Spallumcheen mayor.

“The ability to recover waste water creates a wide range of economic development opportunities”, added Bob Fleming and Mike Macnabb, Regional District of North Okanagan directors.

The jurisdictions are trying to establish relationships together.

“It’s great to be working with our neighbours,” said Byron Louis, OKIB chief.

“More funding opportunities arise when small governments stop competing for provincial and federal grant dollars and start collaborating.”

Further details will be available as the plan develops.
