Mack Laing, MacDonald Wood, Baybrook (Stubbs property) and Filberg parks will not be options for a second sewer pump station in Comox, as approved Tuesday by the regional district board.
Until May 12, the CVRD will continue evaluating properties suitable for the placement of the facility.
The Courtenay pump station has reached capacity, which necessitates the Comox No. 2 pump station. The project is a priority because of risks related to exposure of the sewage pipeline along the Willemar Bluff near Goose Spit.
The facility had been proposed for Beech Street in the Croteau Beach-Hawkins Greenway, which outraged the Area B neighbourhood. A key issue is impact on hydrology.
The budget for the project is estimated to exceed $10.7 million.
