    Why is there nothing on this site about the proposal to infill natural gullies/channels
    from the Treatment Plant down toward Curtis Road with the excavated materials that the CVRD is expecting to generate, with the proposed construction of a new Equalization Basin at the Treatment Plant? So, too, regarding the pile of fill that the CVRD is proposing to place around the perimeter of the fenced portion of the Treatment Plant site and which is expected to be visible from Curtis Road?

      $9 million in approved upgrades are underway at the sewage treaty plant, including the EQ basin. The scope of the LWMP is to propose future upgrades to the system. The CVRD has been engaging directly with area residents about the current upgrades underway at the plant. We encourage you to contact us at engineeringservices@comoxvalleyrd.ca should you have any questions about this work.

    Are there plans to hook up tartan rd to the sewer system?

      There are currently no plans to extend sewer service in this area. Do you live in this area? Is this something you would like to see?

        Yes we just bought a lot and are building. Would be a shame for us to spend the money we are on a septic and then in a few short years hook up to a sewer

          Understandable. As noted though, there are no plans to expand service at this time.

    Is it feasible to charge the developers of new subdivisions a fee according to the size of the developments they are representing? Is this already included in fees to developers in licensing etc at the beginning of a project?

      Yes – We have a sewer service ‘development cost charge’ which is applied to help the regional district pay for the capital cost of providing, altering or expanding sewer system infrastructure to service (directly or indirectly) development. It’s around $7k/single family residential home (just updated in January this year). If you’re interested in the full schedule of fees, just search “DCC” at www.comoxvalleyrd.ca – the bylaw pops right up!

    How about sewer service out to Merville and Black Creek?

      There are currently no plans to extend sewer service to Merville and Black Creek. The distances are too great for this to be a cost effective solution. Do you live in this area? Is this something you would like to see?
