Environment Canada has released 74 pages of proposed regulations on municipal sewage treatment. Once in force, these regulations will set standards for effluent and reporting from about 4000 municipal wastewater facilities, and will considerably tighten discharge standards for many of these plants.
Last year, the Canadian Council of Minister of the Environment endorsed a Canada-wide Strategy for the Management of Municipal Wastewater; this is part of that strategy. The draft of the proposed regulations is available through Environment Canada’s public inquiry centre at 1-800-668-6767 (inCanada only), 819-997-2800 or [email protected]. or directly from the CWWA website at:
