Construction is well underway on a new water treatment plant that will service 45,000 residents in the Comox Valley.
Raw water that’s been pumped from Comox Lake will be treated using three processes: filtration, ultraviolet treatment and chlorination. Treated water will then be transported through a pipeline to the water distribution system.
The new system will eliminate the need for turbidity-related boil water notices.
The total project cost is $126 million.
The expected completion date is the fall of 2021.
