Thornhill’s commercial core will be getting hooked up to the sewage system.
Ted Ramsey is a director with the Regional District of Kitimat-Stikine.
He says there’s been talk of having this project done for 15 years, but the real push came in the last year.
He says having a sewage hook up versus a septic tank offers businesses in the corridor a big advantage.
The project will cost $3.5 million, with about $2.5 million that will be financed.
He says there’s been a call for the sewage connection for a long time, but he points to the province for why it took 15 years.
Ramsey says construction will only take about a month, as much of infrastructure is already in place, given how long the project has been discussed.
He says construction is scheduled to be completed by summer.
