PORT ANGELES, Wash.  – British Columbia Premier Christy Clark has told Gov. Jay Inslee and other U.S. lawmakers that Victoria will treat the sewage it dumps into the Strait of Juan de Fuca.

The Peninsula Daily News report that Clark reassured lawmakers in a letter this month that “sewage treatment will happen.”

She said she has directed the regional capital district to deliver on its sewage requirements, though she didn’t say when it would happen.

Inslee and members of Washington’s congressional delegation in June called on Clark to stop the flow of sewage into the strait, which connects to Puget Sound.

In May, Clark’s government refused to force the Victoria-area municipality of Esquimalt to accept the district’s plans to locate a proposed $780-million treatment facility on the shores of the community.
