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


Residual solids from the McLoughlin Point Wastewater Plant will be 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.

Hartland Resource Management Group (HRMG) has been selected to design, build, finance, operate and maintain the Residuals Treatment Facility over a 20-year term for the Wastewater Treatment Project. The capital cost of the Residuals Treatment Facility is $126.8 million.

HRMG was selected by the Capital Regional District through a competitive selection process and is a consortium of experienced firms including:

  • Bird Construction Inc.;
  • Maple Reinders PPP Ltd.; and
  • Synagro Capital.

The Residuals Treatment Facility contract is performance-based, with payment tied to the quantity of residual solids treated. All treatment processing tanks will be covered and odour control systems will ensure there is no discernible odour in the community from the facility. Noise from the facility will be minimal and will comply with District of Saanich bylaws.

The dried Class A biosolids product will look like small granules and will be suitable for several beneficial uses, including as an alternate energy source. The beneficial use of the biosolids has been determined by the CRD through a separate competitive selection process.

Construction began spring 2018 and is on schedule to be complete by summer 2020 when the Project starts to transition into the testing and commissioning phase.

Construction activities completed on site include site preparation and excavation, the majority of concrete pouring, building two of the three digester tanks and a storage tank. Work continues on the remaining tanks and construction of the remaining buildings.

The Residuals Treatment Facility is being funded by P3 Canada, the Province of British Columbia and the CRD.
