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.

An extension of the system was successfully completed in late 2017, and will bring an additional 43 properties onto the system. 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.
