Over the last several weeks, crews have been busy at both District Hall and our Crown Street Operations Centre, installing charging stations in the parking lots for our new, soon-to-arrive electric fleet vehicles. Each light duty gasoline vehicle we replace with an electric vehicle will reduce our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by a minimum of 1.7 tonnes per year, and likely more.

Families on the street in Deep Cove

As you may have heard, we have developed a plan to lessen the visitor load in Deep Cove and at Lynn Canyon Park this summer. Most of the changes will be in place for the May long weekend, and will remain in place through September. The issues we’re dealing with are a direct result of both places becoming too popular for their own good, and the impact of all those visitors is taking a toll.

Given how soggy our winters are, you'd assume that, right about now, staff are taking a well-earned break from worrying about forest fires, right?

We're willing to bet that our sanitary sewer system is not something that comes up a lot in your everyday conversations (unless you're talking about creepy clowns or 130-tonne 'fatburgs.') And that's okay! We make it our business to think about the sewer system for you, ensuring that it can handle all the waste from our sinks, showers, and toilets, and keep flowing, problem free.
