The Residual Solids Conveyance Line is part of the Wastewater Treatment Project. It includes two pipes along with four pumping stations. The two pipes will connect the McLoughlin Point Wastewater Treatment Plant to the Residuals Treatment Facility at Hartland Landfill and will be installed in a common trench where possible.
It is anticipated that construction will begin in Fall 2018, and is expected to take approximately two years to complete.
The first pipe will be 200mm in diameter and 18.5km long, and will transport residual solids from the McLoughlin Point Wastewater Treatment Plant to the Residuals Treatment Facility for treatment. The second pipe will be 350mm in diameter and 11.5km long, and will return the liquid removed from the residual solids during the treatment process to the Marigold Pump Station, from where it will be returned to the McLoughlin Point Wastewater Treatment Plant through the existing conveyance system.
The Wastewater Treatment Project team is working with the municipalities of Saanich, Esquimalt, and Victoria to ensure technical issues related to the alignment are addressed and, where possible, to coordinate municipal works with construction of the Residual Solids Conveyance Line.
The Wastewater Treatment Project has issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) to three qualified proponents as part of the competitive selection process for the contract to build the Residual Solids Conveyance Line.
Five submissions were received in response to the Request for Qualifications (RFQ) which closed March 21, 2018. The following teams have been selected to participate in the RFP stage:
- Don Mann Excavating Ltd.
- Pedre Contractors Ltd.
- Scansa Construction Ltd.
Proponents are scheduled to submit their proposals in August 2018 and the Wastewater Treatment Project Team expects to award a contract in Summer 2018.
The Project Team held two community information open houses in Saanich in November 2017 to share the alignment for the Residual Solids Conveyance Line and the anticipated location of pump stations with residents.
A community meeting will be held in late summer/early fall 2018 to present information regarding the anticipated construction schedule, impacts and traffic management plans.
