Harmonizing WSER and MWR: A Status Report

Description:The Wastewater Systems Effluent Regulations (WSER) under the federal Fisheries Act were published in the Canada Gazette Part II on July 18, 2012 and include baseline effluent quality standards and risk-based compliance timelines, representing fulfillment of a key federal commitment under the Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment (CCME) Canada-wide Strategy for the Management of Municipal Wastewater Effluent. As part of a further commitment under the CCME Strategy for the establishment of bilateral agreements between the federal government and the provinces and Yukon for the WSER, Canada and British Columbia are working toward an equivalency agreement for the WSER in British Columbia. The approach and process for the establishment of the agreement will be discussed, as well as arrangements for interim administration of the WSER, and continuing collaboration between the two governments.
