The regional district is hosting a Jan. 18 workshop about the Comox Lake Water Treatment Options Study.

The CVRD board has commissioned Opus DaytonKnight Consultants to conduct the study, which includes a review of water intake from the lake and related treatment options. The resulting project is focused on the necessary components to meet Island Health treatment requirements. These include a new intake in the lake or the Puntledge River, a treatment plant, a pumping station and a pipeline.

The district and the Opus team will work with stakeholders over the winter to review options. A draft and final study is due by the end of June. It aims to develop a long-term strategy to provide reliable water that meets health standards.

Monday’s public workshop runs from 7-9 p.m. at the Westerly Hotel, 1590 Cliffe Ave. in Courtenay. A presentation of the study scope, stakeholder input process and technical options for water treatment will be followed by a discussion. RSVP by Thursday, Jan. 14 by calling 250-334-6056.
