Comox Valley Water Treatment Plant
Fresh, filtered and fully disinfected drinking water is now flowing to 50,000 residents in the Comox Valley.
The new treatment plant, completed in 2021, meets provincial health standards and uses filtration, ultra-violet (UV) disinfection, and chlorination to remove the risks of viruses and bacteria in our drinking water. This technology eliminates the need for turbidity-related boil water notices and will provide a secure supply of reliable, high quality drinking water now and into the future.
The $126-million system was constructed by AECON Water Infrastructure and includes a new water intake in Comox Lake, lakeshore pump station, transmission lines and treatment plant.
