Work is well underway for the Comox Valley’s new
water treatment plant, pump station and pipelines. The CVRD will be keeping the
community informed of the project’s progress right up to its targeted
completion in 2021. Watch for news bulletins, time lapse videos, photo updates
and more over at the CVRD’s project webpage: www.comoxvalleyrd.ca/watertreatment.
Construction officially kicked off on the CVRD's largest infrastructure project to date at Comox Lake on October 30. The $126-million dollar project is needed to meet provincial guidelines and deliver safe drinking water to the 45,000 residents of City of Courtenay, Town of Comox and K’ómoks First Nation. The new system will draw water directly from Comox Lake, making the community’s drinking water independent of BC Hydro infrastructure.
Final steps are moving ahead in order to begin construction on the new Comox Valley Water Treatment Project in just a few weeks. Following the award of the construction contract to AECON Water Infrastructure in July, next steps have progressed quickly, including the project kick-off meeting, receipt of detail design drawings, confirmation of construction schedule, and the finalizing of an important agreement with BC Hydro.
After years of preparation and planning, the Comox Valley Regional District’s new water treatment system project has officially moved into the construction phase with award of the design-build contract to AECON Water Infrastructure Inc.
The CVRD recently asked for thoughts and opinions about proposed recreational facilities and amenities at the future Comox Valley Water Treatment site off Lake Trail Road. The site offers access to Bevan Trail and the Puntledge Trail network and we wanted to ensure that any amenities created there will meet the needs of those who use or live near the trails in the area. Thank you to all who responded to our survey. The survey results have been summarized – click here to download the full report.
The CVRD and the Courtenay and District Fish and Game Protective Association have concluded an agreement that will see the CVRD acquire land and statutory rights-of-way needed for the construction of key infrastructure for the new Comox Valley Water Treatment Project. In exchange, the CVRD will provide the raw water needed for the Fish and Game Association's proposed hatchery project.
