Cobble Hill Sanitary Sewer System

Cobble Hill Wastewater System
Cobble Hill Sewer System is located north of Cobble Hill Village, off of Cobble Hill Road in Area C. The system services 84 residential properties.

System Overview and Proposed Upgrades

The sewer system consists of a rotating biological contactor (RBC) treatment plant.  Five concrete tanks provide pre-treatment prior to the sewage entering into the RBC plant for biological treatment producing Class C effluent.  The treated effluent is pumped to ground disposal.

The system is nearing the end of its life-cycle and requires upgrades; work is currently underway to determine the best, long-term, sustainable upgrade solution.

The CVRD was recently successful in obtaining grant funding for the Integration of Cobble Hill Sewer and Re-claim Water Upgrade Project.  Click here to learn more about this project.

An information meeting was held on April 25, 2018 to discuss the project, click here for the Powerpoint presentation.
