The Residual Solids Conveyance Line is part of the Wastewater Treatment Project. It includes two pipes along with four or five 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. Though the design is not complete, it is anticipated that a common trench will be used along the majority of the route.
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.
It is anticipated that the design will be finalized in spring 2018. The construction schedule will begin in summer 2018, and is expected to take approximately two years to complete.
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.
While the route is close to final, it is still subject to input from communities and feedback we received during the November open houses will be considered, along with other technical and financial considerations, in finalizing the design.
