Alignment with the “Canada-wide Strategy” establishes timeline for new treatment plants in Metro Vancouver
Metro Vancouver Reference Panel urges replacement of Lions Gate and Iona Island no later than 2020
Based on the Canada-wide Strategy for the Management of Municipal Wastewater Effluent and the assessment made by its Environmental Monitoring Committee, Metro Vancouver has concluded that replacement of the Lions Gate treatment plant should proceed within a 10-year timeline (i.e. by 2020) and Iona Island within a 20-year timeline (i.e. by 2030).
“The Reference Panel is looking to senior governments to demonstrate their shared responsibility and commitment by providing fair and equitable cost-sharing so that both can be replaced sooner rather than later, and preferably no later than 2020,” states Christianne Wilhelmson, Reference Panel Co-Chair.
