Pump station addresses growth in Langford

Pump station and water mains targeted for McCallum Road

The City of Langford is moving ahead with plans to build a pump station and water mains on McCallum Road. The station, which has been planned for several years, was pre-serviced with hydro power and water mains during completion of the Leigh Road Interchange in 2013.

The new pump station on McCallum near Savory Road will provide water and hydrant services for the new Bear Mountain Parkway extension, said Langford engineering director Michelle Mahovlich. It will also provide water to the South Skirt and Bear Mountain development areas.

Langford council unanimously supported allocating Capital Regional District development cost charge funding to the project, at a special meeting of council last week. Mahovlich said the total cost of the project is pending, but the city plans to put the work to tender this summer so it can be completed before the parkway extension is paved.
