Province Invests in Comox Shoreline Schemes

As part of the public safety funding announced in the 2016 provincial budget, the Province of British Columbia is committing $1.1 million in funding toward a shoreline protection and restoration project in Comox.

This $1.7 million project includes a $600,000 contribution from the town of Comox.

These restorations will reduce flooding and the on-going foreshore erosion adjacent to the Lazo Road shoreline that, if left unrepaired, will adversely impact the road and utility lines that feed approximately 1,500 customers.

More than half of the foreshore in this area has moderate to heavy erosion, mainly due to the wave action of significant winter storm events.

The provincial investment is part of over $49 million being provided to flood mitigation projects in communities across British Columbia.

In the 2016 budget, the B.C. Government announced $65-million in initiatives to help keep communities safe, including $16 million for public safety preparedness initiatives and $49 million for community hazard mitigation projects, such as upgrades to dikes and flood protection.
