Opportunities for residential growth, reduced pressure on existing infrastructure, rehabilitated drainage ditches and a new, widened shoulder for pedestrians are all positive results of the Hudson Trunk sewer line construction project, completed this week.

The new forcemain, installed in the Knight Road/Idiens Way area, increases capacity in the Comox Valley Regional District’s (CVRD) sewer service by redirecting flows from east Courtenay directly to the sewage treatment plant rather than through the current Courtenay pump station. Construction on the project started in January and was completed with paving along Idiens Way and Parry Place last week.
