The public feedback period is now complete.

The Capital Regional District has developed the 2022 Regional Water Supply Master Plan that includes a proposed infrastructure program intended to improve the water supply and transmission system and add redundancy to critical components to address hazards and risks. The Plan recommends projects to be implemented over the next 30 years based on the projected population, the impacts of climate change, and water treatment needs resulting from changing raw water quality characteristics and regulatory requirements over time. Modeling indicates that additional water will need to be sourced from the deep northern basin of Sooke Lake Reservoir and the Leech River water catchment area by 2045.

The feedback period is now complete. The Plan received Board approval on August 10, 2022. Feedback received from public engagement will be used to guide how the plan is implemented over time, with further engagement carried out as each project is designed and implemented. Engagement with First Nations will be ongoing, with a focus on projects located in or near traditional territories and areas of cultural significance.
