Kaleden Sewer Expansion Project
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 via the Kettle Valley Railway (KVR) path on the western shore of Skaha Lake. The sewage will then be treated at the Okanagan Falls Biological Nutrient Removal Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP).
A public assent vote is set for Saturday June 5, 2021. The public assent process is required to determine if there is official community support for the project. The originally scheduled June 20, 2020 referendum vote was postponed due to COVID-19.
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 is now operational!
Information will be updated as it becomes available.
A new Quesiton and Answer section at the end provides a space to ask any question on the project!
