Bob Wells sits on the board that makes decisions about the Comox Valley’s water supply. He has been making sure that tax payers’ money is being spent wisely to ensure safe drinking water. The installation of the UV treatment station will see an immediate reduction in boil water advisories by about 80%. Residents will no longer be inconvenienced and restaurants and businesses will not have the added frustrations and expenses.
UV treatment is part of the final solution and the CVRD has purchased the reactors in advance and has installed them on the existing system. Once the major filtration treatment project is underway the UV reactors will be installed in the final water treatment plant.
The large scale project will not be completed until 2021.
