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 recently 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.

Further reports and consultations are following with different funding models and plans for each system.
