We helped the City of Vernon develop its latest Liquid Waste Management Plan (LWMP) to control liquid wastes and improve water quality. First, we identified options to address issues with sanitary sewer and storm water runoff in Vernon and surrounding areas. Then we evaluated the options, which included looking at financing, operations, growth and objectives. We consulted with the community, focussing on financial trade-offs of various programs and discussed technical options with the public in order to ensure their continued support for the plan’s objectives. An environmental impact study into risks associated with the potential increased discharge of treated effluent to Okanagan Lake helped inform the discussions with both the public and municipality.
