Wastewater Systems Effluent Regulations Reported Data
The Wastewater Systems Effluent Regulations (WSER), developed under the Fisheries Act, came into force in 2012 to manage wastewater releases by systems that collect an average daily influent volume of 100 cubic metres or more. The WSER also does not apply to any wastewater system located in the Northwest Territories, Nunavut and north of the 54th parallel in the provinces of Quebec and Newfoundland and Labrador. The WSER set national baseline effluent quality standards that are achievable through secondary wastewater treatment. The regulations also specify requirements for carrying out effluent monitoring, reporting and record keeping.
These files contain information about each wastewater system as reported in the Effluent Regulatory Reporting Information System (ERRIS) by the owners\/operators of each wastewater system subject to the WSER for the years 2013 to 2018. The datasets include wastewater system information such as treatment types and discharge point locations, concentrations of carbonaceous biochemical oxygen demanding matter and suspended solids, acute lethality test results, and volumes of effluent discharged from the final discharge point and from combined sewer overflow points.
Data not included
The data for the 2018 reporting year does not include wastewater data from municipalities in the province of Quebec. This data is not reported in ERRIS and is provided to the department separately through the equivalency agreement that was finalized in October 2018.
