A shortlist of wastewater management scenarios and the estimated costs for a wastewater management service in the Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD)’s south region will be introduced at an open house, scheduled for Wednesday, January 21, at the Union Bay community hall from 4 to 7 p.m.
The event will include informational boards, with project staff and engineering consultants available to update the community on the shortlisted scenarios.
“The community has been very interested in this project for a long time. This is a critical stage where important information is coming forward and we need to hear their feedback,” said Bruce Jolliffe, chair of the CVRD’s board of directors and director for Baynes Sound-Denman Hornby Islands (Area ‘A’). “Everyone in the community is encouraged to come and learn about the process and options and to share their thoughts.”
The open house is the second in the south region liquid waste management planning (LWMP) process which was launched in May to review options for wastewater management and water resource recovery in the area, and to identify the best solution for providing effective sewer service for the Royston and Union Bay area.
“We want people to learn about the work we are doing and to ask questions so we can be sure the final decision is ultimately the best one,” said Kris La Rose, CVRD’s manager of liquid waste planning.
The Comox Valley Regional District is a federation of three electoral areas and three municipalities providing sustainable services for residents and visitors to the area. The members of the regional district work collaboratively on services for the benefit of the diverse urban and rural areas of the Comox Valley.
