2017 Major Capital Projects

Work is starting on two of the Village’s major 2017 Capital Projects. These include:

  1. Upgrades to the Waste Water Treatment Plant–(Rapid Infiltration Outflow Basins). This project will entail the rehabilitation of the old outflow basin including the digging of a large 450 foot long trench that will be up to forty feet deep in places. This project will ensure that the Village is in compliance with both Federal and Provincial environmental legislation for discharge of effluent waste water into Beaver Creek. The project is budgeted at $790,000 with funding being provided by the Federal and Provincial Governments under the CWWF grant program at $665,000, and the Village of Montrose $135,000. TRUE Consulting from Trail will be providing the lead Engineering services for the project.
  2. Repairs and upgrades to Lower and Upper Water Reservoirs. Work will entail reinforcing the underside roofs, and the blast cleaning and re-coating of both tanks. The work will further extend the useful life of the tanks by another 12-15 years. The project is budgeted at $425,000.

Residents will be advised as to the progress of both of these projects once construction schedules are confirmed, and tenders awarded.
