West Shore Siting
The West Shore communities of Colwood and Langford are both part of the CRD Core Area municipalities. These communities will see the delay of construction of a wastewater treatment plant as part of a larger Core Area system until at least the year 2030.
February 2010 West Shore Consultation Report
On January 26th and 28th 2010, CRD held two siting open houses in Langford and Colwood. The open houses provided an update on the wastewater treatment project, opportunity for West Shore residents to discuss the Program with staff and local representatives and give feedback via comment forms.

The CRD held two open houses in the West Shore. Residents were given an opportunity to learn about a proposed treatment plant at 3300 Wishart Rd, talk with staff and engineers and give feedback on the proposed site.
A decision was made on June 9, 2010 to move forward with a centralized treatment model, which will involve deferral of the construction of a West Shore plant until at least 2030.
