Upgrades to the Comox Valley sewer system are critical to the long-term viability of our sewer service. Comox No. 2 Pump Station was considered as an option to upgrade the system and remove an environmental risk posed by aging pipes along Willemar Bluffs. However, alternatives are now being reviewed as part of the Comox Valley Sewer Service Liquid Waste Management Plan.
Background information for work done to date on the Comox No. 2 Pump Station is contained in the links below.
