Central Saanich's Largest Sewer System Replacement Project Kicks Off

District of Central Saanich
CENTRAL SAANICH -  Central Saanich celebrated the kick off one of its largest infrastructure projects today. The much-anticipated Brentwood Bay sewer system replacement is officially underway. 

The sewer system, which handles approximately half of the municipality’s wastewater, including flows from the W̱JOȽEȽP (Tsartlip) First Nation, has reached the end of its lifecycle. Replacing and reconfiguring the system has been a top infrastructure priority for the District since condition assessments noted several critical components of the system need replacement.

The $12.4M project to replace the Brentwood Bay sewer system is one of the largest capital projects undertaken by the District in recent times. The project is eligible for $5.8M in funding from the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program due to the environmental protection aspect of the project as the main sewer pump station is a few metres away from Saanich Inlet.

New main pipes will be installed in the roadway and new sewer service connections will be provided to the properties. In total, the project includes 4,270 meters of sanitary sewer mains along Sluggett Road, Wallace Drive and Stelly’s Cross Road. Improvements along Wallace Drive will also include the installation of new bike lanes. 

During construction, there will be minor detours and traffic impacts. Impacted property owners will receive notification, and the public can stay up to date at CentralSaanich.ca/BrentwoodSewer.
