New video shows how you can help improve our region’s stormwater
Infographic explains why some things just shouldn’t be flushed
Our region generates over 1 billion litres of wastewater every day and is continuing to grow. Metro Vancouver receives wastewater (or sewage) from municipal collection systems and carries it to regional wastewater treatment plants. Wastewater is treated before it is discharged to the lower Fraser River, Burrard Inlet or Georgia Straight.
Our priority is to protect public health and the environment by ensuring that wastewater is moved safely from houses and buildings, maintaining healthy waterways and recovering resources from wastewater.
