The Town of Comox collects sanitary sewage and conveys it to lift stations operated by the Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD). These stations further convey the sewage to the Comox Valley Water Pollution Control Centre in Cape Lazo.
This treatment facility serves the Town of Comox, the City of Courtenay, K’ómoks First Nation, and Canadian Forces Base (19 Wing Comox).
Comox Valley Sewer Conveyance Project
The Comox Valley Sewer Conveyance Project is a multi-year construction project that will replace the pipes and upgrade the pump stations that move more than 14,000 cubic metres of raw sewage each day to the sewage treatment plant on Brent Road.
This new system will route sewer pipes further inland where they will no longer be vulnerable to damage by waves, rocks and logs. Watch this video to find out more about the project and how it will protect the beaches and waters throughout the Comox Estuary, Point Holmes, Goose Spit coastline, as well as Baynes Sound.
About the Project
This is a significant and complex Project that starts at the Courtenay Pump Station and moves through K’ómoks land, downtown Comox and the Lazo Road area to the Comox Valley Water Pollution Control Centre (Sewage Treatment Plant) on Brent Road. There are construction impacts, traffic impacts and archaeological considerations. The Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) is working with many jurisdictions, including the Town of Comox, to deliver this project smoothly and efficiently and minimize impacts where they can.
