Business as Usual at the Health Regions

Despite the amalgamation of the provincial health regions into one entity as the Saskatchewan Health Authority, it is business as usual in the various health offices.

Health officers attended and presented at six of the seven education days hosted in April with the message that contractors and installers could expect to go to the same offices for their permitting needs.  There might be some crossover from one office to another, but the primary goal of the amalgamation is to ensure that consistent information and paperwork requirements are the same from office to office.

The Saskatchewan Onsite Wastewater Disposal Guide is undergoing significant revision and review and will be ready for public consultation shortly, while the changes to the Private Sewage Works Regulation tabled last year are still awaiting ratification through Cabinet.
