Greenwood Trunk Sanitary Sewer Line

Construction began in June on the Greenwood Trunk Sanitary sewer collection line, which will increase capacity in the region’s sewer service. The new line will bypass the Courtenay pump station and move wastewater from East Courtenay and CFB Comox directly to the sewage treatment plant on Brent Road. Diverting wastewater away from the Courtenay pump station will help to accommodate future growth in the community.

Project Background

The Greenwood Trunk Sanitary Sewer Collection Line will increase capacity in the Comox Valley Sewer Service by relieving pressure on the Courtenay Pump Station. This new line will redirect a portion of the City of Courtenay’s wastewater away from the Courtenay pump station by gravity flow to an existing sewer trunk main along Knight Road and then on to the sewage treatment plant.
