Environment, Energy & Forestry
This week, the department’s Water Management division confirmed that the last of the 28 private wastewater facilities had met the provincial requirement for registration.
“Having these system properly registered has been a priority. Now that they are all documented, it will be easier for our departmental officials to work with wastewater system operators and make sure that our regulations and standards are being enforced,” said the minister.
Under the province’s Environmental Protection Act, all operators of wastewater systems are required to register their operations with the Department of Environment, Energy and Forestry.
