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. Eight residents have been appointed to a Public Advisory Committee to represent their communities in the development of the plan and play an essential role in considering community goals and public feedback throughout the process.

Goals and Objectives

The goals and objectives for our long-term plan were adopted by the Sewage Commission on February 25- officially establishing the primary decision-making guide for selection of the optimum long-term conveyance, treatment and resource recovery solutions for the service. See the staff report here.

The Long List

The long list of options for conveyance, treatment and resource recovery was approved by the Sewage Commission at its meeting March 12. Feedback collected at open houses and through the online survey was considered during that decision, as was recommendations from the public and technical advisory committees. See the staff report here.
