COMOX, B.C- A major sewer upgrade in the Comox Valley is all finished.

That’s according to the Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD), which had been working on the Greenwood Trunk sewer line since June.

It’s meant to reduce pressure on the existing sewer infrastructure in the Valley by diverting wastewater from East Courtenay away from the Courtenay Pump Station to an existing main along Knight Road. From there, the line would flow directly to the area’s treatment plant on Brent Road.

With Greenwood now in place, properties in East Courtenay and CFB Comox will be connected directly to the treatment plant.

“This line offers important efficiencies in our system and was a key step to ensuring capacity within our infrastructure as our communities continue to grow,” said Charlie Gore, the Comox Valley Regional District’s Manager of Capital Projects, in a news release.

“Our thanks to everyone who has been patient with the construction and resulting traffic pattern changes throughout the summer and fall – it was certainly a busy route to interrupt, but we’re glad to say it all went smoothly.”

The district is now planning for the Valley’s long-term future when it comes to sewer service.

According to the release, the Greenwood project finished on schedule.
