Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The Bay Avenue Sewer Pump Station, located adjacent to 385 Bay Avenue in Parksville, BC, conveys about 85% of the City of Parksville's wastewater to the French Creek Pollution Control Centre.

The Bay Avenue Sewer Pump Station was originally constructed in 1978 and upgraded in 1997 and 2003. It must be upgraded again to increase pumping capacity and meet the current standards for Flood Construction Levels to protect critical electrical and control system components at the pump station and mitigate a potential environmental release.

The current approved budget is $6.4 million including engineering fees and construction.
