T'Souke First Nation IR No. 2 Sanitary Sewer Collection System

The T'Sou-ke First Nation has two occupied Reserves in the vicinity of the District of Sooke. These Reserves are approximately 50 kilometers south of Victoria, BC.  The project is located within T'Sou-ke IR No. 2 in the District of Sooke, BC.  Due to poor soil drainage on the reserve the in ground septic tanks and tile fields have failed with sewage breakout to the surface from failed exisiting tile fields.  This project is a high priority project to the First Nation due to human sewage contamination and health concerns as a result of sewage being brought into the homes by children or pets. The T'Sou-ke First Nation wishes to construct a gravity sanitary sewer collection system and a waste water pump station which would pump the raw sewage through a forcemain to the District of Sooke waste water treatment plant, located just north of the Reserve boundary.  In addition to this, the T'Sou-ke First Nation wish to construct an additional 22 lot subdivision to be serviced by this sanitary sewer collection system and an extension of the roads, water supply, underground hydro and street lighting.
