Sentinel Ridge Sanitary Sewer System

Sentinel Ridge Wastewater System

Sentinel Ridge sewer system is located in Area A, south of Mill Bay, and services residential properties, town-homes and a marina.

System Overview

The system consists of both gravity and pressurized collection systems that transport sewage to a Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) treatment plant producing high quality, Class A effluent.  The treated effluent is discharged to ground using rapid infiltration basins (RIBs)

Critical equipment is monitored 24-hours a day for malfunctions (such as pump failures); if such an abnormality occurs an alarm is sent to the on-duty pager to alert CVRD-staff for immediate response.
