Victoria Sewage Treatment Alliance records

The series consists of textual records created or collected by the VSTA. A large number of the records are meeting minutes, reports, or records otherwise documenting the activities of the Capital Regional District (CRD), and specifically the activities of the Core Area Liquid Waste Management Committee.

The series also contains records created to raise awareness about pollution risks of untreated sewage, such as petitions, letter-writing campaigns, and event planning (such as the Toilet Regatta). Events are further documented in series MS-3358: Photographs.
