The first major construction contract in the Capital Regional District’s sewage treatment project is expected to be awarded today (June 14) to upgrade the Craigflower pump station.

CRD staff are recommending directors approve a bid of $11.5 million from Jacob Bros. Construction Ltd. to replace the aging pump station, built in 1971.

The pump station will convey household waste water from Langford, Colwood, View Royal, Esquimalt and Songhees and Esquimalt First Nations to a future treatment plant at McLoughlin Point.

Work is expected to begin next month and completed by the summer of 2014, according to a CRD staff report.
