City Secures Project Manager to Oversee Wastewater Plant Build


Kimberley’s Wastewater Treatment Plant project gets underway as City Project Manager Shane Castle signs on to oversee the build. 

Castle has been with the City of Kimberley for three years in the position of Project Manager, coming to the City with municipal experience in Prince George and Gibsons. A native of Kimberley, Castle has provided oversight to many projects, including active transportation projects at Lindsay Park and Marysville Elementary Schools and, most recently, the Platzl parking lot revitalization work. With Castle in place, the wastewater treatment plant build will ramp up.

Castle said of the project, “I’m looking forward to supporting this build. The new facility will improve wastewater treatment in Kimberley and will support the City’s efforts for high-quality effluent. This has been a long time coming for our community, and I’m glad to be a part of it”

This project has been made possible through a more than $66 million-dollar grant received from the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program, a joint initiative of both the Federal and Provincial governments; as well as electoral approval to secure a portion of the City’s costs through borrowing. The build will take approximately four years, with the plant anticipated to come online in 2028.

A search for a new Project Manager to backfill Castle’s position is now underway. Stay tuned to for more information on this project as it becomes available.
