Project Type Liquid Waste
Project Status Completed
Project Area Esquimalt
Contracted To / Performed By Kenaidan Contracting Ltd.


The new Macaulay Point Pump Station pumps wastewater from western core area municipalities and the Esquimalt and Songhees Nations to the McLoughlin Point Wastewater Treatment Plant for tertiary treatment. It was built to replace the original pump station that pumped sewage directly into the ocean. The Macaulay Forcemain is the 1350mm diameter pipe that connects 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.

Construction on the new Macaulay Point Pump Station is coming to an end. The next steps include landscaping and restoration which will create an attractive and welcoming waterfront space to be enjoyed.

The design for the 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 is 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.
