Skaha Estates and Kaleden Sewer Expansion Project
Skaha Estates and Kaleden Sewer Expansion Project and Updates
The Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen (RDOS) is pleased to share the results of the recently completed preliminary design report with the residents of Kaleden for the long-awaited new sewer collection system.
The preliminary design report summarizes the findings, conclusions and recommendations for the new sanitary sewer system and trunk conveyance system for the community of Kaleden. The trunk conveyance system will
connect into the Okanagan Falls existing sewer system . The sewage will then be treated at the Okanagan Falls Biological Nutrient Removal Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP).
Now that the preliminary design report is complete, we will be presenting the information to the community for comment and questions. Following all of the engagement, a public assent process is required to determine
if there is official community support for the project. The originally scheduled June 20, 2020 referendum vote is postponed due to COVID-19; when a date for a public assent process is determined it will be communicated.
In the meantime, the RDOS will provide detailed information and answer questions so citizens are well-informed with accurate information prior to the referendum. Due to the pandemic, traditional methods of community
engagement such as open house meetings are not possible. The RDOS is developing other modes of engagement to ensure public concerns are addressed. The main engagement platform will be a website that will be operational
starting on June 5th, 2020, so come and take a look!
