Community response is the backbone of public input. It can take the form of survey results, engagement at public dialogue sessions or responses gathered at consultation sessions. The CRD's engagement with the public has the specific goal of hearing and taking into account what the public consider important. Everyone has a say, and community response ensures that your say is recorded and taken into account during planning for wastewater treatment.
