The Wastewater Treatment Project includes a 108 megalitre/day tertiary wastewater treatment plant at McLoughlin Point in Esquimalt to be operated by the CRD. The treatment plant is designed to minimize visual impacts from the water and includes a multi-level green roof, mature landscaping, observation deck, and multi-use education space.

This plant is being built by Harbour Resource Partners (HRP). HRP is a consortium of experienced firms including – AECOM Canada, Graham Infrastructure, HDR Architecture, SUEZ, Graham Capital and Michels Canada. HRP includes top-tier global expertise in wastewater treatment plant financing, design, construction and operations coupled with local knowledge and experience gained on past CRD projects.

The McLoughlin Point Wastewater Treatment Plant construction and commissioning will take place from spring 2017 to fall 2020.

Construction at McLoughlin Point will look similar to any large urban construction site. Construction works include: site preparation; horizontal directional drilling to construct the cross-harbour undersea pipe from Ogden Point to McLoughlin Point; pouring concrete foundations; exterior building construction and mechanical and electrical work inside the building.

Anticipated work hours are Monday to Sunday from 7am - 7pm.
