RDN considers extending waste water consulting deal

Koers and Associates Ltd. has provided consulting for waste water services department

The Regional District of Nanaimo board will consider whether to extend a deal with a wastewater services consultant next week.

Engineering firm Koers and Associates Ltd. was selected by the RDN in 2015 – via a request for proposals – for the purpose of assisting the waste water services department for projects related to municipal engineering and waste water collection. The initial contract was for two years and the board will decide whether to extend it for another two.

Fuel tank and manhole replacement and treatment plan upgrades are among work by Koers during the first two years of the deal, according to a regional district staff report.

The report estimates the total value of the extension won’t surpass $150,000, which would be borne by the Greater Nanaimo and French Creek, Nanoose Bay and Duke Point pollution control centre operating budgets.
