RESOLVED: Odour Advisory: McLoughlin Point Wastewater Treatment Plant

Mar 07, 2023 (updated Mar 10, 2023, 1:32pm)

The CRD completed the required maintenance work

The Capital Regional District (CRD) carried out maintenance at McLoughlin Point Wastewater Treatment Plant (MWWTP), located in Esquimalt on March 7 & 8.

The maintenance work was likely to generate intermittent odours near the facility for the week, including areas immediately surrounding the plant and parts of Esquimalt.  

CRD staff and facility contractors made every effort to limit impact experienced by residents.  We appreciate your patience while we completed this necessary maintenance.
