Vernon Liquid Waste

In January 2013, Vernon council was split as to whether or not to discharge effluent into Okanagan Lake.

SENS as well as Save Our Lakes (SOL) are opposed to a lake discharge. In January 2020 the issue has raised its head again; Vernon council has approved allowing a discharge.

Vernon's liquid waste management plan (LWMP) is meant to address the following concerns:
  • collection system
  • treatment system
  • disposition of treated effluent
  • composting of biosolids.

Read the reports below to understand SENS' contribution and position to this important and very expensive issue.
