Clean water in, waste out – that was the focus of two items that went before Saanich council on Monday.

Council gave final reading to a sanitary sewer bylaw amendment, extending sewer service at Elk/Beaver Lake Regional Park to include washroom facilities at Beaver Beach and the filter beds.

Council also awarded a tender for waterworks fittings to four out of five bids, covering everything from valves and hydrants to repair clamps and couplings.

Valued at $363,932 before taxes, the tender will be paid for through the city’s waterworks utility fund. It was structured so that various sections of work could be awarded separately to receive the most value for payment.

The tender was awarded to Emco Corporation Waterworks Ltd. ($236,919), Andrew Sherets Ltd. ($42,886), Corix Water Products ($8,009) and Flocor Inc. ($76,117).
