More;

 

The integrated resource management aspect of the project involves the piping of sewage sludge from McLoughlin Point to the Hartland Landfill. That's where sludge will be processed through something called anaerobic digestion into Class-A biosolids. Ranns says there are companies willing to work with raw sludge, saving the CRD the cost of piping sludge to the landfill and the anaerobic digestion facility, but those options are being left out.

She changed her mind

 

The Chair of the Capital Regional District has changed her mind about supporting a more than $42-thousand European tour of Integrated Resource Management sites in October. 

Last week's vote to send 2 staffers and 3 Committee Chairs to investigate waste management sites in Germany, Belgium, Spain and France passed narrowly, 6-5 at the Committee of the Whole.  But it still needs to be approved by the CRD Board and environment committee.

But CRD Chair and Esquimalt Mayor Barb Desjardins says she is no longer in favour and will present an alternate plan:

Excerpt:
A separate backgrounder report notes that the province has resisted efforts by regional governments such as the CRD for “flow control” — the authority to control movement and disposal of recyclables or solid waste.
...That lack of authority is seen as a major challenge as the CRD explores “integrated resource management” options as part of the sewage treatment program. Sewage sludge would be mixed with solid wastes such as food scraps and processed to create revenue by, for example, generating electricity, heat or fuel.
 
CRD considers lowering tipping fees at Hartland Landfill
