Around Town: New Campbell River Water Supply Plans will Locate Treatment Facilities at Lake Pump Station
Plans for the City’s new water supply project now include a water transmission line down Highway 28 to connect to the existing watermain off Powerhouse Road, and relocation of the City’s ultra violet and sodium hypochlorite treatment facilities to the new pump station building that will be constructed at John Hart Lake.
The entire drinking water project is now valued at $22.4 million, with BC Hydro’s overall maximum contribution at $18.3 million, which includes 100 per cent of the additional $5.8 million work to consolidate the treatment facilities and run the water transmission line down the highway to Powerhouse Rd. The City’s cost remains at $4.15 million.
The new drinking water source is scheduled to be operating in fall 2017, before the existing BC Hydro penstocks are removed as part of the $1.1 billion John Hart Generating Station replacement project.
