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 would connect into the Okanagan Falls existing sewer system via the Kettle Valley Railway (KVR) path on the western shore of Skaha Lake. The sewage would then be treated at the Okanagan Falls Biological Nutrient Removal Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP).

A public assent vote was held on Saturday June 5, 2021. The public assent process failed as insufficient support was received from the initial service area to borrow the necessary funds to continue with the project.

The RDOS is providing the main information presented during the project in the links below.
