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 1350mm diameter pipe that will connect the Macaulay Point Pump Station to the McLoughlin Point Wastewater Treatment Plant.
Kenaidan Contracting Ltd. was selected by the CRD through a competitive selection process to design and build the pump station and forcemain. 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 selected to design, build and expand the Clover Point Pump Station.
Construction of the Macaulay Point Pump Station and Forcemain began in spring 2018 will take approximately two years to complete. A portion of the current pump station was demolished in summer 2018 followed by excavation for the new pump station. Concrete pouring continues on site and is anticipated to be complete in the fall followed by construction of the wood structure above ground. Forcemain construction began in June 2019 and is progressing down Bewdley Avenue.
The design for the new pump station considers its location on the waterfront, greatly improving the visual impact of the building and creating a park-like amenity for the community to enjoy. The new pump station will be mostly below-grade with one storey above ground and a pitched roof that slopes towards the ocean. The design applies Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) principles including a rain garden, native plants to reduce irrigation requirements, low-level lighting to minimize light pollution, and a green roof.
The waterfront trail will remain open to the public during construction and operation of the Macaulay Point Pump Station and Forcemain.
