The Capital Regional District is looking for Victoria residents to sit on an advisory panel on the future of wastewater.

The Eastside public advisory committee will provide guidance to the CRD’s Eastside Wastewater and Resource Recovery Select Committee on the public consultation process required to develop a sub-regional wastewater and resource recovery plan for Oak Bay, Saanich and Victoria.

“Public consultation is a vital step in the process to find wastewater treatment and resource recovery options that are supported by our communities,” said Victoria Mayor Lisa Helps, chair of the Eastside Wastewater and Resource Recovery Select Committee.

“This advisory committee will help ensure that residents have the opportunity to be part of a meaningful public consultation process.”

The advisory committee will be comprised of 10 people from the three participating municipalities.

Deadline for applications is March 3.
