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.

We Need Your Voice on our Public Advisory Committee
The CVRD needs members of the community to join its Public Advisory Committee for the Liquid Waste Management Plan. Sewer is an essential service and decisions made today will impact the future of our region. Bring the perspective of your community to decision makers and influence the plan for our future sewer system.
Public Advisory Committee members will:
- Consider community goals as represented by major planning documents (Offical Community Plans, 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.
- Provide input and recommendations to the Steering Committee on matters pertaining to the LWMP.
Frequency of meetings and honorarium
Meetings will occur 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 5 to 10 committee meetings will be held over the course of the LWMP process. Committee members will be entitled to claim an honorarium of $125 per meeting. 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.
