The Comox Valley Water Treatment Plant – A year in review.

CVRD Water Treatment Opening Ceremony

This fall the Comox Valley Water Treatment plan celebrated one year of the construction completion. We thought it would be a great idea to look back on the project and the benefits to the region one year later.

The Comox Valley water treatment plant project kicked off in 2018 to achieve:
  • Elimination the need for turbidity-related boil water notices
  • Removal the risk of viruses and bacteria in our drinking water
  • A secure supply of reliable, high quality drinking water for decades to come

The new system and treatment plant uses three treatment processes: filtration, UV disinfection and chlorination. When the plant became operational in September 2021, over 50,000 residents in the Comox Valley enjoy fresh, filtered and fully disinfected water

Hyland worked with Aecon Group Inc. a Canadian company that is a leader in construction and infrastructure development with global expertise. We are proud to have been a part of this project that supplies clean water to our communities. The replacement of the water treatment plan led to  the development of the Comox Lake Watershed Plan.
