Project Type Liquid Waste
Project Status Completed
Project Area Saanich
Contracted To / Performed By Hartland Resource Management Group (HRMG)


Residual solids from the McLoughlin Point Wastewater Treatment Plant are piped to the Residuals Treatment Facility at Hartland Landfill, where they will be treated and turned into what are known as Class A biosolids. These biosolids are a high quality by-product suitable for beneficial use. The beneficial use of the biosolids has been determined by the CRD through a separate process.

Hartland Resource Management Group (HRMG) was selected to design, build, finance, operate and maintain the Residuals Treatment Facility over a 20-year term for the CRD. The Residuals Treatment Facility contract is performance-based, with payment tied to the quantity of residual solids treated.

Construction began in spring 2018 and the Residual Treatment Facility is now in the commissioning phase, which is creating odours that can be smelt along Willis Point Road.

Odour control systems will ensure there is no discernible odour in the community from the facility once commissioning is complete. Noise from the facility will be minimal and will comply with District of Saanich bylaws.
