Macaulay Point Pump Station and Forcemain Contractor Selected

Feb 01, 2018

Victoria, BC–The contractor for the Macaulay Point Pump Station and Forcemain has been selected and is Kenaidan Contracting Ltd. The Macaulay Point Pump Station is being upgraded as part of the Wastewater Treatment Project, and the Capital Regional District (CRD) has entered into a $35.9 million contract with Kenaidan to design and build a new pump station and forcemain.

Kenaidan Contracting Ltd. (Kenaidan) was selected by the CRD through a competitive selection process. Kenaidan has more than 30 years of experience building, modernizing, and expanding waterworks facilities within British Columbia and southern Ontario. Kenaidan is also the contractor recently selected to design, build and expand the Clover Point Pump Station.

The new Macaulay Point Pump Station will pump wastewater from western core area municipalities and the Esquimalt and Songhees Nations to the McLoughlin Point Wastewater Treatment Plant for tertiary treatment. The Macaulay Forcemain is the pipe that will connect the Macaulay Point Pump Station to the McLoughlin Point Wastewater Treatment Plant.

The design for the new pump station considers its location on the waterfront and will have similar standards of design, material and quality of construction as the CRD’s recently built Craigflower Pump Station.

Construction of the Macaulay Point Pump Station and Forcemain is anticipated to start in March 2018 and will take approximately two years to complete. To minimize impacts to residents and all road users, the forcemain will be installed in segments. All work will be completed within the existing Macaulay Point Pump Station site and existing road right-of-ways.

The waterfront trail will remain open to the public during construction and operation of the Macaulay Point Pump Station and Forcemain.

The Wastewater Treatment Project is being funded by the Government of Canada, the Government of British Columbia and the CRD.
