All treated wastewater will be dispersed through an irrigation system on the golf resort property and not into an out fall in Baynes Sound.
A landowner (name removed) was kind enough to pass this info along so all landowners are aware of KIP aka Union Bay Estates plan for a “…seasonal discharge of up to 1,875 meter cubes per day of treated municipal sewage to Hart Creek during the months of October through May”.

Subject: 2019-11-25 Kensington Union Bay Properties Sewage Discharge
Thank you for your email of November 4, 2019, addressed to the Honourable George Heyman, Minister of Environment and Climate Change Strategy, regarding sewage in Union Bay. Minister Heyman has asked that I respond on his behalf.
The Ministry has received a final application package from Kensington Union Bay Properties GP Limited for registration under the Municipal Wastewater Regulation for a seasonal discharge of up to 1,875 meter cubes per day of treated municipal sewage to Hart Creek during the months of October through May with storage and reclaimed water use during the rest of the year.
The proposed discharge would serve a commercial and residential development in Union Bay subject of a Master Development Agreement with the Comox Valley Regional District. More information on the project from the regional district can be found at:
The Ministry’s next steps are a comprehensive review of the application for compliance with the Municipal Wastewater Regulation including review of the Environmental Impact Study, and First Nation consultation. Questions regarding the review of this applciation may be directed to Melanie Mamoser at Melanie.Mamoser@gov.bc.ca
Thank you again for taking the time to write.
