FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
From the Regional District of Central Okanagan
January 19, 2018
Construction is underway on a $3.5-million project at the Westside Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant expanding the outfall into Okanagan Lake.
The new outfall line will go from the plant, crossing Whitworth Road and through the City of West Kelowna’s Pebble Beach Park, extending offshore approximately 440 metres into Okanagan Lake.
Construction will run through the end of March between 7:00 am and 5:30 pm daily and requires the closure of Pebble Beach Park for the duration of the construction. Pedestrians and vehicles should be aware and obey traffic control in this area.
Area neighbours have been advised of the park closure and traffic control measures.
The outfall expansion project will result in increased efficiency and operation of the plant located off Gellatly Road. It treats approximately 10-million litres of wastewater each day from the City of West Kelowna, District of Peachland and Westbank First Nation Reserves #9 and #10.
