Local Government Feedback Invited on Sewerage Manual

The Ministry of Health is soliciting feedback on a Version 3 Sewerage System Standard Practice Manual (SPM) consultation draft for wastewater practitioners. The SPM is the primary source of reference for BC wastewater practitioners responsible for designing, installing and maintaining onsite sewage systems, pursuant to the Sewerage System Regulation and Public Health Act.

The Ministry has been working with independent contractors and industry stakeholders – including registered onsite wastewater practitioners, professional engineers and regional health authority staff – to develop an updated SPM to replace the current version 2.

The consultation forum is located on the Ministry of Health website and will be running until May 30, 2014.

Please forward this notice to the relevant departments within your organization that may be affected by or have an interest in the onsite sewage industry in B.C.
