Plans for the water treatment plant are moving forward.

Last Thursday, the plant went up on B.C. bid for the design and construction supervision, said Tony Edwards, Interim Director of Engineering and Development Services.

Edwards says they are on step two of three steps: Pilot study, detailed design, and construction.

Council is done the pilot study and are now working on getting detailed drawings of the layout and plans and getting a project supervisor, and after that comes construction.

“[Construction] won’t start ’till next spring likely,” said Edwards.

Bids should be in by July 5 and the design company chosen and working on the project by mid-August, he said.
