The runway is 3,990 feet long and 70 feet wide with a clearing of 50 feet and will land a 40,000 pound plane.

Sewer Systems

In Lillooet, only Central Lillooet has a municipal sewer system. North, East and South Lillooet are served by private systems (septic tanks).

In 2004, the District of Lillooet replaced the Central Lillooet Spirogester with a Waste Water Treatment Plant. This project was funded by the Canada / BC Infrastructure program where the municipality contributed 1/3rd and the Federal and Provincial Governments each contributed 1/3rd.

Roads & Streets

The District of Lillooet maintains 52 kilometres of roads. There is a capital maintenance program that spends $130,000 every other year to re-surface roads and improve drainage.

During the years we do not re-surface roads, $20,000 is expended to replace or repair existing sidewalks.
