Comox Valley Sewer Service Liquid Waste Management Plan
Ensuring our sewer system meets the needs and goals of the community is a critical part of the Comox Valley Regional District’s (CVRD) services. To plan for the future, the CVRD has elected to use a Liquid Waste Management Plan (LWMP) process to identify the improvements required for the sewer system in Courtenay and Comox and engage the public in the creation of a future vision for the sewer service in these communities.
- The Comox Valley Sewage Commission approved the Terms of Reference for the Technical Advisory Committee and the Public Advisory Committee at its meeting on June 12. These committees will provide input, perspective, specific expertise and recommendations to the Sewage Commission during the LWMP process. Read the news release for more information.

Participate in the Public Advisory Committee
The Public Advisory Committee (PAC) is an advisory group whose primary role is to represent community interests in the liquid waste management proces. This includes the people, areas and environments that are served and potentially impacted by sewer services in Courtenay and Comox.
The Committee will:
- Consider community goals as represented by major planning documents (OCPs, Sustainability Plans, etc).
- Consider public opinion and feedback related to the LWMP on behalf of the Steering Committee.
- Provide feedback on documents provided by the CVRD Project Staff and/or the Consultant.
- Have the authority to provide input and recommendations to the Steering Committee on matters pertaining to the LWMP.
The CVRD will seek and invite representation from key public, community, business, and stewardship stakeholders with interests in the future of sewer services in Courtenay and Comox. There will be six residents at large sought, including two from Comox, two from Courtenay, one from the Croteau Beach area and one from the Brent Road area. The total number of representatives will be at the discretion of the CVRD. View the Public Advisory Committee Terms of Reference for the full invitatation list.
Frequency of Meetings
Meetings will be expected to occur both on an ongoing basis (for example, monthly, quarterly or at key milestones) and as required to address pressing LWMP process issues that arise. It is expected that at least five to ten committee meetings will be held over the course of the LWMP process. PAC meetings will normally be held at the CVRD offices during business hours. The committee members will also be expected to participate in public consultation activities, which may include separate meetings, open houses or less formal gatherings.
