Shaping the future of our Sewer Service

SEWER PLANNING FLOWS AHEAD

Thank you to everyone who participated in the development of the Comox Valley Sewer Service Liquid Waste Management Plan- including the many members of the general public who participated in workshops, open houses, online surveys and online information sessions. In particular, thank you to the members of the public and technical advisory committee for their ongoing commitment over the three-year process.

The project team is now preparing the second draft of the plan which will be submitted to the province in summer 2022 and review will take about one year. The third stage of the plan, including financing and an implementation schedule, will be drafted and shared with the community in 2023. Final approval of the Comox Valley Sewer Service LWMP is likely to occur in 2025.

Sewer Conveyance Project Next Steps

The LWMP identified a preferred conveyance route for new/upgraded sewer pipes and pump stations, which was approved by the Comox Valley Sewage Commission in February 2021. Borrowing was approved through an Alternative Approval Process in July 2021 and this critical work is now moving forward as a separate project due to its urgent nature. Stay up to date by following the project page.

  • Sewage Commission Moves Long List Forward

    At their March 12 meeting, the Comox Valley Sewage Commission adopted the long list of options for conveyance, treatment and resource recovery in the sewage planning process underway now. A staff report, which included recommendations based on feedback from the public and technical advisory committees, outlined the full list of options that will be considered.

    Information sheets on the long list options are available in the documents section of this page (in right-hand column of webpage).

    The long list will now go through a review process with technical consultants and public and technical advisory committees, who will consider the agreed-upon goals and objectives of the planning process to identify a short list. Stay tuned for more information about how you can be involved in reviewing the short list.

    For more information, read the staff report here.

  • Goals and Objectives Adopted by Sewage Commission

    The draft goals and objectives developed by the public and technical advisory committees with feedback from the public, were presented to and adopted by the Comox Valley Sewage Commission on Feb. 25. The approved goals establish the decision-making framework for the the long-term conveyance, treatment and resource recovery options being collected and reviewed now. Minutes from the meeting, including the staff report, can be found here.

    Results from the long-list review process will go before the Sewage Commission in March.
