Help shape the future of our Sewer System in Courtenay and Comox

About the Comox Valley Sewer Service Liquid Waste Management Plan

Ensuring our sewer system meets the needs and goals of the community is a critical part of the Comox Valley Regional District’s services. To plan for the future, the CVRD has elected to use a Liquid Waste Management Plan process to identify the improvements required for the sewer system in Courtenay and Comox and engage the public in the creation of a future vision for the sewer system in these communities.

What's Happening Now

We have asked the community to review the draft goals and objectives for our long-term plan and we have taken your feedback to our Public and Technical Advisory Committees. The committees are now working to finalize their recommendations, which will be presented to the Sewage Commission on January 17. This stage is important because these goals will be used to evaluate all of the infrastructure options that will be considered in this long term plan for our sewer system.

Next Steps

The committee will bring a long list of options for our sewer service to the community for review. This will include options for conveyance of wastewater (pipes and pump stations), treatment of wastewater at our treatment plant and resource recovery (re-use of treated effluent). We will ask you to let us know if we are missing any options that should be reviewed by our technical consultants. Residents will have the opportunity to engage with us at information sessions taking place on January 30 and 31. Not able to make it? We will be posting an online survey here from January 30 through February 5.
