MSR Solutions upgraded the wastewater treatment and disposal system in the 2600 block of Queenswood Drive in Saanich. The 0.93-hectare property is now subdivided into two strata lots: Strata Lot A and B.

Strata Lot A covers 0.34 hectares of the divided property and has a five-bedroom house under construction. The house will require a wastewater treatment and disposal system.

Strata Lot B now has a four-bedroom house with a wastewater treatment and disposal system.

The Queenswood Drive construction is complete and a Letter of Certification submitted to Island Health on March 29, 2021.
