Abstract: This paper describes a method available for evaluating sewage treatment requirements in cold regions. The City of Whitehorse wastewater management situation has been used as an example of the comprehensive approach. Based on the Yukon Territory Water Board Draft Water License, the effluent fish toxicity and the sampling requirements were found to be the main areas of concern. Alternative guidelines were proposed that would help to minimize the cost of upgrading and still provide an adequate level of protection of the environment.
