Construction of waterworks infrastructure is set to begin the week of June 19th on the lands to the west of the Chlorine Station in the Cumberland Community Forest Park.
The Village worked closely with the Cumberland Community Forest Society to identify the location for the new site, and the new treatment plant is located in an area that has already been recently logged, and minimizes ecological impact.
Initial work will include land clearing, grubbing and geotechnical site analysis. Increased traffic along Davis Lake Main can be expected and trail users are reminded that the road is an active industrial road, to yield to all service vehicles, and obey all posted signage.
The work is all part of the 2017 water infrastructure improvements project and will result in the construction of a new reservoir tank and water treatment facilities, as well as related site improvements. Water main twinning work is also slated to take place in 2017 and will result in trail closures to Spanker.
The Village continues to work with the Cumberland Community Forest Society and Comox Valley Land Trust on a long term conservation covenant for this property, which was acquired by the Village of Cumberland, with funds raised by the Cumberland Community Forest Society, in 2016.Search again
