The review process will consider options for the conveyance of wastewater (pipes and pump stations), treatment and resource recovery.

This was one of the measures undertaken last year to reduce odour at the plant.

Public feedback sought on sewer upgrades

Info. sessions Jan. 30, 31

With goals and objectives set for the regional district’s sewer service liquid waste management plan (LWMP) for Comox and Courtenay, technical and public advisory committees are bringing a long list of LWMP options to the public for preliminary review.

Two information sessions will be held at the end of January to update the public on the process to-date, to introduce the long list options and to collect preliminary comments. Stop in at any time to review the information and chat with the project team.

The first session is Wednesday, Jan. 30 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the K’omoks First Nation Community Hall, located behind the I-Hos Gallery, across the street from the Band Office. The second is Thursday, Jan. 31 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Rotary Hall, downstairs in the Florence Filberg Centre.

“It’s particularly important at this stage to hear from residents about any options that may have been missed on the long list,” said Kris La Rose, senior manager of water and wastewater services. “The next step is for our technical consultants to assess the options to help the advisory committees form a short list that we will bring back to the public. We don’t want to miss anything at this stage of the review.”

The planning process for Courtenay and Comox’s sewer service began in summer, and will be moving towards the selection of a preferred option this fall.

For those unable to attend in person, feedback will also be collected from Jan. 30 to Feb. 5 online at
