The Royal Colwood Golf Club has thrown its name in the hat as a location for a possible wastewater treatment site.

The Westside Wastewater Treatment and Resource Recovery Select Committee, which represents Esquimalt, Langford, Colwood, View Royal, Songhees Nation and Esquimalt Nation, received a letter from the golf club offering a three-acre parcel of land for consideration as a possible site.

Last month, the committee released a list of 20 potentially feasible sites for the facility including the Esquimalt First Nation Reserve, Esquimalt Lampson Field, Bullen Park

and the Esquimalt Works Yard and town centre.

Two sites in Langford, 11 in Colwood and one in View Royal were also named.

The public is encouraged to provide feedback on all the sites until today (July 22).

“We want to hear from as many individuals as possible before we make our decision on which sites and treatment scenarios are studied as part of the detailed technical and costing analysis so we strongly encourage everybody to participate in Westside SiteSpeak,” said committee co-chair Barb Desjardins.

“Adding an additional site to the public consultation at this stage has its challenges but it is important that we don’t close ourselves off to options if they come forward.”

As the westside committee continues public consultation, the eastside committee is wrapping up theirs. At a meeting earlier this week, the committee received a list of five recommendations as a result of the public consultation, including further studying the option of having a centralized system at Rock Bay, which received a 73 per cent approval rating online, removing Ogden Point, the Coast Guard and Banfield Park from the list of acceptable sites and looking into cost an analysis of a distributed system.
