Thanks to the dedicated work of our contractors, Copcan Civil Ltd., the majority of the concrete on the Kus-kus-sum site has been removed, piled and crushed.. The concrete has been processed into 3-inch minus crush, and graded and certified by Lewkowich Engineering.

Our philosophy since the beginning of this project has been to re-use and recycle as much of the material as possible and we hope to see this done with the concrete as well. As such, we are looking to identify interested parties who would like the crush for re-use on other projects. The crush is the proper size to be used as road base and could be mixed to create structural fill as well.

We are hoping to support projects and developments locally, and increase the financial viability of the project. We would be happy to part with as much crush as you can make use of, with a minimum expected order of 20 truckloads. Project Watershed will be covering the loading of trucks, flagging needs, and site supervision, with the expectation that trucking will be covered by individual buyers. Cost recovery for Project Watershed’s handling costs is important so we’ll be asking for a minimum suggested donation of $75.00 per load for trucks and $100 per load for truck and pup.

If you would like to make an inquiry regarding receiving the crushed concrete, please reach out to projectwatershed@gmail.com to indicate how much crush you’re interested in and when you would be looking to pick it up.

The Kus-kus-sum site is an active work zone, please DO NOT enter the site without personal safety equipment (hard hat, steel toed boots and safety vest) and specific permission from Project Watershed staff to do so.

We are excited to announce that as of the end of September, we finished the removal, crushing and re-purposing of the surface concrete at Kus-kus-sum. All crushed concrete was successfully repurposed offsite to projects throughout the Comox Valley to be used as fill and road base. As we removed the surface material, we uncovered a few areas with additional sub-surface concrete.
