The Comox Valley Water Pollution Control Centre (CVWPCC) is a secondary wastewater treatment facility operated by the Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) for the communities of Courtenay, Comox and CFB Comox on Vancouver Island. The CVWPCC was first proposed in 1978 as a replacement for aging municipal and military wastewater treatment facilities. From an initial concept of collection and discharge to a long marine outfall, the design of the CVWPCC rapidly evolved to include primary and secondary treatment with aerated static pile composting of dewatered sludge.
Designed by Associated Engineering (BC) Ltd., the CVWPCC opened in March 1984 with a crew of five. At present, there are seven operators, all of whom are certified under the BC Environmental Operators Certification Program.
