Last Updated: May 6, 2020

Project Description:

Contractors working on behalf of the City of Courtenay will be installing new sanitary sewer infrastruture, including approximately 1600m of gravity main, 1700m of forcemain, and a sanitary pump station, to reroute a portion of East Courtenay’s sewage flows to the existing portion of the Greenwood Trunk Sewer conustructed in 2017 and allow for future development. 

The contractor will mobilize on site in May, 2020.  The work is expected to take approximately seven (7) months and be completed some time in December. Works are generally expected to occur during standard working hours.

Much of the project is to occur on private property. The main construction access to the site shall be via a farm gate on Anderton Road, approximately 50m north of the Hamilton Road intersection. For works along Anderton Road, between Greenwood Crescent and Hamilton Road, traffic control personnel will be on-site to safely direct vehicles, cyclists, and pedestrians.

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

All regulatory permitting has been retained to support the works. As known fish bearing waterways are present through and adjacent to the project location, mitigation measures, including fish window adherance, a fish collection program, and active monitoring by a registered environmenal professional shall be utilized during active construction.

Schedules will be updated as work progresses and up to date project information may be viewed on this website page.
