Received the following email from a fellow landowner- name removed. Looks like the final decision to allow 1875 cubic meters of treated sewage to be dumped daily into Washer Creek will be made by the First Nations Bands mentioned in the email.

I forgot to mention this part in my previous responses to you. As part of the Review and Decision Phase, the province undertakes First Nation consultation. In addition to the K’omoks First Nation, we will be consulting with the Homalco, Qualicum, We Wai Kai and Wei Wai Kum First Nations to understand how their Aboriginal Interests may be affected by this application and seek to address their concerns.
