Last month, Kitimat City Council approved a budget of $100,000 for all expenditures related to completing a study to review the current sanitary sewer system capacity and find out if there are components that require upgrading to support the proposed developments.

The money for the study comes from a UBCM grant which the District applied for. They were informed at UBCM via letter that they received the money for the study, as well as $10,000 to retrofit the Pollution Control Centre.

Councillor Mario Feldhoff expressed there was going to be sewer analysis as a part of some the subdivision proposals going on in Kitimat and wanted to know what is already being done.

“All of the developers that are increasing density have been asked to look at the downstream sewage flows, some are planning to do that this fall. In reviewing the number of different locations and proposals coming forward and with this opportunity to get a grant for the work through this particular program, we determined it was probably better to do an overall study and update that from the last one done in the early 80s,” said District Engineer, Tim Gleig.

The motion was called and carried.

usually when they do these studies the conclusion is that they will need to do more studies.
