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 and, thereby, will protect the beaches and waters throughout the Comox Estuary and Point Holmes and Goose Spit coastlines, 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 CVRD is working with many jurisdictions and partners to deliver this project smoothly and efficiently and minimize impacts where we can.

The Comox Valley Sewer Conveyance Project will be constructed and funded in one phase but will include two separate construction contracts. One contract will be delivered as a Design-Build contract and will entail sections from the Courtenay Pump Station to the bottom of the Comox Road hill and then from the intersection of Lazo Road and Torrence Road to the treatment plant. The second contract will be a conventional Design-Bid-Build (DBB) contract for works generally through the Town of Comox.
