Capacity Assessment of Sanitary Sewer Infrastructure Study

The 2013 Business and Capital Plans included a third party capacity s sewer system. A Request for Proposals (RFP) was developed by TRUE Consulting in consultation with the Director of Operations (PW) and the Chief Administrative Officer (CAO). Three companies responded to the RFP and Council awarded the contract to Kerr Wood Leidal Associates Ltd. in August of 2013.

Kerr Wood Leidal Associates Ltd. (KWL) was retained to perform a comprehensive capacity assessment analysis to the Town of Osoyoos' Sanitary Sewer System.  Some important questions regarding the current and future elements of the system has been brought forward from residents, council, and staff that are to be answered in this assessment. These include:

  1. Can the existing transmission and treatment system handle the current seasonal loads as well as take on the development currently being constructed?
  2. What is the capacity of the system to service future growth of the Town?
  3. What is the anticipated growth for Osoyoos as well as the surrounding areas within the Osoyoos service area.
  4. What improvements in the future are triggered by new developments and growth, inside and outside the town boundary, to connect to the sanitary sewer system?
  5. What are the costs of these necessary improvements to the system and how does Osoyoos recover those costs from the developers?
  6. What is the appropriate per equivalent dwelling unit" charge for service to lands outside the municipal boundary?

Council is seeking public review and comment prior to July 7, 2014 either in writing or via email to
