Description

The Clover Point Pump Station will be upgraded and expanded as part of the Wastewater Treatment Project. The current pump station pumps sewage directly into the ocean. The expanded pump station will pump wastewater to the McLoughlin Point Wastewater Treatment Plant for tertiary treatment and provide bypass pumping to the existing outfall during storm events.

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

Construction on the Clover Point Pump Station began in early 2018 and will be complete in mid-2020. The contractor, Kenaidan, conducted further geotechnical investigations in the upper parking lot at the Clover Point Park in early December 2017. In January 2018, Kenaidan set up a preliminary work site on the west side of the entrance to Clover Point.

A key consideration during the construction will be managing potential impacts on the surrounding community. All construction activity will comply with City of Victoria bylaws regarding hours of work and noise levels.

The Clover Point Pump Station expansion will be primarily underground and below the grade of the adjacent section of Dallas Road. The expanded facility will be constructed out of materials that will allow it to blend with the existing facility and surrounding area. It will also include upgraded odour and noise control features, such that there is no discernible odour or noise to residents. The scope of work also includes a number of public realm improvements, such as public washrooms, pedestrian and bicycle paths, bicycle facilities, a public plaza, street furniture and road intersection improvements.

The Clover Point Pump Station was built in the 1970s and is owned and operated by the CRD. The current pump station pumps wastewater directly into the ocean. The expanded pump station will pump wastewater to the McLoughlin Point Wastewater Treatment Plant for tertiary treatment during normal flows and provide bypass pumping to the existing Clover Point outfall during storm events.
