What does the SCRD do?

Here are some of the local services that are funded and/or provided by the SCRD with examples from this area:


The SCRD operates 17 small sewage treatment systems up and down the coast, two of which are in Elphinstone: Sunnyside (serving 11 properties) and Woodcreek Park, serving 73 properties.

Although we’ve been managing some of them for decades, until now there has been no long term plan, and not enough money has been set aside for repairs and replacement. Staff assessed the condition of each wastewater facility and presented a full report to the board on November 28, 2019.

The SCRD is hosting two Wastewater Service Information Session for the property owners and residents of properties within wastewater local service areas in Electoral Areas E:

Wed. January 8, 2020, 1:30 pm and 5:30 pm
Frank West Hall

A short staff presentation will include the current known condition of the wastewater system components, anticipated future capital expenditures, and potential changes to funding models. Questions and comments from the property owners will be received and considered when preparing future policy that may impact utility rates.
