Is Sewer Treatment Really Necessary ??

A map showing active marine sample stations, as well as Closure 24.1 - an area Prohibited to shellfish harvesting. The boundary of this Prohibited area was expanded slightly to the southwest in January 2012. There is still debate in Tofino as to if sewer treatment is really necessary....while a shellfish closure hasn't prompted a public outcry we will hear about it if any local beaches get a swimming closure due to sewage contamination.The District of Tofino is still working on the Stage 3 Liquid Waste Management Plan and has been for over a decade.
