The Environmental Services Department works in conjunction with the Fort Fraser Local Commission, Northern Health, and the Ministry of Environment to manage and operate the drinking water and wastewater (sewage) services for the community of Fort Fraser. The water system includes two ground water wells, pump station, reservoir and distribution network while the sewage treatment system includes a series of three lagoons which act to filter, treat and polish the effluent prior to discharge to the Nechako River.

In 2007, the Regional District completed upgrades to the sewage treatment facility which included the construction of a septage receiving facility. This new infrastructure will provide for an environmentally sound disposal option for residents in the surrounding area with septic tanks as part of their private sewage treatment systems. Completion of the septage receiving infrastructure was made possible by the receipt of monies under the Canada/BC Infrastructure Grant Program.

If you have any questions regarding the operation or management of the Fort Fraser drinking water or wastewater systems, please contact the Wastewater/Water Coordinator at the Regional District of Bulkley-Nechako.
