The Wastewater Treatment Project will provide tertiary treatment for wastewater from the core area municipalities of Victoria, Esquimalt, Saanich, Oak Bay, View Royal, Langford and Colwood, and the Esquimalt and Songhees Nations.

The Wastewater Treatment Project is being built to meet the provincial and federal regulations for treatment by December 31, 2020. The Project consists of three main components:

McLoughlin Point Wastewater Treatment Plant

Located at McLoughlin Point in Esquimalt, the treatment plant will provide tertiary treatment to the core area's wastewater.

Residuals Treatment Facility

Residual solids from the wastewater treatment plant will be piped to a Residuals Treatment Facility at Hartland Landfill, where they will be turned into what are known as Class A biosolids. These biosolids are a high quality by-product treated such that it is safe for further use.

Conveyance System

The conveyance system refers to the 'pumps and pipes' of the Wastewater Treatment Project. This system will carry wastewater from across the core area to the treatment plant, and residual solids to the Residuals Treatment Facility at Hartland Landfill.

The Project will cost $765 million and the federal and provincial governments are assisting the Capital Regional District in funding this project.
