System Overview


Mesachie Lake Sewer System was built in the 1940's by Hillcrest Logging Company to support houses built for its workers and their families. Despite the age of the system, and its primitive design, the system continues to function, but is badly in need of upgrades.

To bring the system up to modern day standards, and to comply with the Ministry of Environment’s regulations, the system requires upgrades to all parts of the system as well as the addition of a treatment plant to treat the sewage to higher quality. 

Options are currently being explored for to determine the best, long-term, sustainable solution to upgrade the system.  Find out more about the system by clicking here
