Help shape the future of our Sewer Service

Please note: Public consultation on the Comox Valley Sewer Service LWMP is currently on hold. See update below.

Sewer Planning: Public Engagement on Hold

The Comox Valley Sewer Service, which treats wastewater, or raw sewage, from homes and businesses in Courtenay, Comox and K’ómoks First Nation, needs a long-term plan that will help the Comox Valley Regional District plan for the future.

SUMMER 2020 UPDATE:
Public engagement on the future of the service has been rescheduled to the fall in response to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). This decision was made to ensure the community can focus on the current public health issues, and that the quality of public consultation on this important issue isn’t compromised.

Engagement – including the re-launch of an online survey on the shortlist of conveyance options (pipes and pump stations) is targeted for September. Responses to the survey that was live on this page in March have been saved and will form part of the final report. Stay tuned here for updates on future planning and opportunities to weigh-in as they become available.

Geotechnical Assessment Underway
The CVRD will continue with geotechnical and hydrogeological assessment in the Lazo Road area from August 11 to August 21, 2020. The results will provide information about ground conditions and groundwater levels in the area to help analyze if the tunelling options under consideration for the shortlist are viable. The data gathered will determine if ground conditions can support the directional drilling that would be required for construction. This includes ensuring that groundwater levels and groundwater quality would not be negatively impacted. Once data from this work is analyzed, reports will be made available to the public.
