Low Pressure Sewer Systems
Cowichan Tribes is developing a design to connect the homes located between Boys Road and Sahilton Road to a local municipal sewer using a Low Pressure Sewer system. Other areas also being considered for a low pressure sewer system include homes in Glenora, Miller Road, Koksilah Road and homes along the Trans Canada Highway.
The new sewer lines will connect Cowichan Tribes homes to the closest neighboring municipality: Duncan, North Cowichan or the Cowichan Valley Regional District. All funds for these projects are being secured from Indigenous Services Canada.
