Alta Lake Road was the last area in Whistler not completely serviced by sanitary sewer. This project will now connect the remaining lots to the municipal sanitary sewer system. The project included approximately one kilometre of sanitary sewer main, manholes and connections to 31 property lines, and three RMOW parcels. The project was approved to proceed by Council on October 8, 2019 after a positive petition was received as initiated and voted on by residents.
Staff awarded the design, contract administration and construction management services to ISL Engineering and Land Services. Construction Contract was awarded to Conwest Contracting.

On May 3, 2019 the RMOW sent out a petition to impacted residents. The petition was for the creation of two Local Service Area Bylaw’s that would be created to finance the design and construction of the Alta Lake Road Sewer Extension. The costs outlined in the petition document reflected the estimated project design and construction cost and ongoing operation and maintenance costs for the municipal sanitary sewer only. The cost of the construction of the sanitary sewer has been proposed at a 50 per cent cost share with the RMOW, and the RMOW’s 50 per cent would come from the existing sewer capital reserves, which has been funded by all RMOW taxpayers presently connected to the municipal sewage system. The petition closed August 30, 2019.
The residents who have been petitioned were invited to an open house August 6, 2019. This was an opportunity for residents to ask about the petition process.
