Kudos to mayor for dealing with RV sewage

Agassiz RV enthusiasts now have a safer, better way to dump waste

On behalf of local RVers, a thank you to the municipal works crew and the mayor for a job well done.

Regarding the municipal sanitary sewer dump located at the fairgrounds. For some year, a sewer dump situated at the fairgrounds has serviced recreational vehicles owned by District of Kent taxpayers. The dump seems to work just fine. However, the cleanup water supply is, and has been inadequate, cleanup inconvenient and by virtue of winter weather conditions, completely out of service during most of the winter months.

By necessity, the water supply was turned off during cold weather season. Some residents went to neighbouring communities to dump sewage at those facilities, some chose to rig a device on their own property in order to dump untreated sewage into the residential sewer system. Not a real good idea! Some had other innovative ideas.

When our mayor, John Van Laerhoven, not an RVer, was apprise to this situation, he immediately investigated, saw the urgent need, found the resources in the budget and ordered an upgrade.

Thanks to the mayor and the skill and knowledge of the municipal works crew and management, we now have an all weather sanitary sewer dump (same location as the old ). The new facility installed by our own knowledgable and efficient crew, has a frost free (self draining) shut off and can be used in all weather.

On behalf of all local RV’ers, thanks for a job well done.

Albert Key, RVer
