The Village of Kaslo has confirmed the winning bid for the first phase of its Sanitary Sewer project.

In a media release, Village officials said the winning tender is Brenton Industries Ltd. of Kaslo.

Officials said in 2012, the Village began development of a Liquid Waste Management Plan (LWMP).

“One of the recommendations arising from this work is to expand the sanitary sewer service within the lower Kaslo area,” the media release said. “Phase One of this proposed sewer system expansion will provide service to approximately 60 parcels in and adjacent to the downtown commercial area.”

The Village said it applied for funding through the Union of BC Municipalities Strategic Priorities fund and was awarded $910,000 for this project, which will fund contract costs, engineering, and project-related costs to Kaslo.

“This is great news for the residents of Kaslo,” the release said.

“We anticipate starting construction in March 2019, with an anticipated construction timeline of approximately four months.”
