Everyday approximately nine million litres of wastewater generated from homes and businesses make its way for treatment at the Westside Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant off Gellatly Road in West Kelowna.
The Regional District operates the plant to service West Kelowna, Peachland and Westbank First Nation reserves. The plant uses the internationally recognized Westbank biological treatment process and recently underwent a more than $13-million expansion.
During ‘Drinking Water Week’ in BC, you’re invited to take a free one hour tour of the facility. See first-hand how we safely treat wastewater and release it into Okanagan Lake.
Tours will be held at 10:00 am, Wednesday, May 22nd, Thursday, May 23rd and Friday, May 24th.
Please pre-register by calling Regional District Environmental Services at 250-469-6250.
