All of the campus's waste water is handled through the regional government's sewage system. Sewage is screened and passed into the ocean with no chemical treatment. The campus will be connected to the new sewage treatment system currently being constructed by the Capital Regional District that will provide preliminary, primary and secondary wastewater treatment in an environmentally responsible manner.
