Your Weekly Construction Briefing

Construction of the Comox Valley Water Treatment Project is close to the finish line. With a $126 million budget, this is by far the largest infrastructure project to be undertaken at the CVRD.

The new Comox Valley Water Treatment Plant is undergoing commissioning and soon will be complete. This photo shows the first stage of the treatment process – where binding of solids and particles in the raw water happens before the water moves to filtration. (Photo provided by the CVRD).

The new system, will comply with the provincial surface water treatment objectives guideline and deliver three main benefits: eliminate turbidity-related boil water notices, remove the risk of organic contaminants, and provide a secure supply of reliable, high quality drinking water.

As commissioning of the new system begins, residents may notice slight changes in taste and temperature of their drinking water. Commissioning will be complete with the new system fully operational by mid-August.
