Concerns have been raised regarding the location of private lagoons being used for commercial sewage disposal.
While the Ministry of Environment and Northern Health regulate the operation of such lagoons, only the Regional District has the jurisdiction to regulate the location.
To ensure that commercial sewage disposal operations are located with regard to community interests and concerns, this proposed P-3 Utilities Zone in Electoral Area C would require public consultation for the location of new commercial sewage disposal facilities.
For more information or to review the proposed bylaw please see the May 26, 2016 Board report and draft bylaw .
The Public Hearing will be held July 11, 2016 at 7:30 pm at the Pomeroy Sport Centre, 1st Floor, 9324 96th Street, Fort St John.
