Place sewage plant offshore

Placing the plant offshore requires no land, no local landfill, no truck traffic in neighbourhoods

Victoria’s sewage treatment facility or facilities should be placed on the ocean. Several communities around the world have sewage treatment plants located on vessels offshore. I only heard this option mentioned once in this debate.

Placing the plant offshore requires no land, no local landfill, no truck traffic in neighbourhoods, no massive disruptions to build a pipeline to the landfill, and utilizes inexpensive  barging away residue to a landfill such as the open pit mine on Texada where further treatment or storage could take place. Nimbys rejoice, there is a solution.
