Greenwood Trunk Sewer Connection

Start: 2018 (Options) / 2020 (Construction)


Last Updated: October 7, 2021

Project Description:

Contractors working on behalf of the City of Courtenay are installing new sanitary sewer mains off Anderton Road, along with a new sewer pump station. The project will re-route a portion of East Courtenay’s sewage flows to an existing portion of the Greenwood Trunk Sewer constructed by the Comox Valley Regional District in 2017.

This project is required to accommodate current and anticipated development in the area.

The contractor mobilized on site in June, 2020. Construction is expected to continue until February 2022. Construction activities are generally expected to occur during standard working hours.

Much of the project will occur on private property, with the main construction access to the site via a farm gate on Anderton Road, approximately 50 m north of Hamilton Road. Construction along a 130 m portion of Anderton Road was completed in September.

The construction contract was awarded through an open public competitive tendering process. Leighton Contracting (2009) Ltd. was the successful bidder.

The City of Courtenay has obtained all necessary regulatory permits for this project.

Due to the presence of fish-bearing waterways and amphibian habitats through and adjacent to the project, the City of Courtenay and contractors are following a number of measures to protect the environment, including limiting the work to a schedule approved by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans to minimize the impact on aquatic life.

Active construction will also incorporate a fish and amphibian collection program, as well as active monitoring by registered environmental professionals.

Schedules will be updated as work progresses. Please see our website at for up-to-date project information.
