District gets project updates

There will be an open house to discuss the road design for Barriere Town Road, on February 26, at 6:30 p.m.

The District of Barriere held a Committee of the Whole meeting on February 5, to get updates on several of the projects currently underway.

Eco-Tek representative, Kim Rink, spoke first, going over some minor adjustments to the building design for the water reclamation building – things like replacing a bay door with regular double doors.  The design work is nearly done, and should be able to go to tender in March.

Dave Underwood spoke next, with an update on the overall wastewater project.   The concrete has been poured for the Septage station, and the construction of the facility is on track. Two more wells will be drilled for the effluent disposal system, probably at the end of February or early March.  The electrical control systems for the wastewater treatment plant are currently being worked on.

There was a discussion about where the pipes will be placed, with a few sections to be added should the finances allow.  One such portion is a line down the alley from Kamloops to Lilley (in behind the Lions Community Hall).

There will be an open house to discuss, among other things, the road design for Barriere Town Road, on February 26, at 6:30 p.m.  The public is encouraged to attend this meeting and give their input.
