COVID-19 Update

The Strathcona Regional District (SRD) is closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and reviewing its essential services and decision-making processes to ensure business continuity during the COVID-19 pandemic. As an essential service provider, the SRD must continue to operate and maintain service delivery that is crucial to the well-being of residents.

Significant effort has been put into planning and preparedness and the SRD is taking this situation very seriously, doing everything possible to respond to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic in a safe, measured and concerted manner.

The following is an update to the Quathiaski Cove Sewer: Operations and legislative testing will continue as usual and a business contingency plan is in place if needed.

Quathiaski Cove Sewer Connection and User Fees Update

As of year end 2019, all connection fees for the 43 properties within the expansion area will have been collected by the SRD. These connection fees do not contribute to the operations of the sewer system.

In typical municipal servicing, as properties are physically connected to the system, they are inspected and the collection of user fees for the property start as of that date. Annual expenses for the sewer system are spread equally amongst the properties within the sewer local service area and due to inflationary costs related to the repairs and maintenance of the system, the cost of operating the Q-Cove sewer plant have increased.

About the System

The Strathcona Regional District owns and operates the Quathiaski Cove Sanitary Sewerage System on the west side of Quadra Island, at Quathiaski Cove. The system was established in response to a voter-approved referendum in 1992/93 and formally established on May 30, 1994 with the passing of Bylaw No. 1588 which outlines collection, conveyance, treatment and disposal of sewage for lands within the Local Service Area. The sewer service to all users within the service area is currently provided in accordance with Bylaw No. 173, Quathiaski Cove Sewer Rates and Regulations Bylaw 2013.

An extension of the system was successfully completed in late 2017, and brings an additional 43 properties onto the system.  The map of the Quathiaski Cove Sewer Service Area, including the afore-mentioned 43 properties is listed below.  Click on map to zoom in.

The service extension addresses key community sustainability goals, specifically around protecting the environment and supporting the creation of a village hub in the Quathiaski Cove area.
