    Campbell River's South end sewer system has reached maximum capacity

    CITY ANNOUNCES TEMPORARY DELAY IN OCCUPYING 20 NEW HOMES TO PROTECT PUBLIC HEALTH

    To protect public health and safety, no new homes can be connected to the sewer system in a southern Campbell River neighbourhood until the City can increase sewer capacity.

    The City has been monitoring the sewer system and has confirmed that it has reached capacity in the area between Willow Creek, Highway 19A and Jubilee Parkway.

    "This affects people looking forward to building or moving into new homes in this area. We are now advising people with 20 new homes that, unfortunately, we must delay occupancy permits.” says deputy city manager Ron Neufeld. “To help keep people working, the City will issue building permits on the understanding that occupancy will not be granted until we have additional sewer capacity for this area.”

    Neufeld says the City is contacting people directly “to discuss what this means for them and what they can anticipate as we work toward a solution. We recognize this is unwelcome news – and we are sincerely sorry for the concern, frustration, disappointment and significant inconvenience this is likely to cause for a number of people.” Read more...
