The Wastewater Treatment Project is being built to meet the provincial and federal regulations for treatment of the core area's wastewater by December 31, 2020. It will include construction activities in Esquimalt, Oak Bay, Saanich, and Victoria.
Construction is underway on the McLoughlin Point Wastewater Treatment Plant. The cross-harbour undersea tunnel from Ogden Point to McLoughlin Point is now complete. Construction of the Residuals Treatment Facility at Hartland Landfill began in late spring 2018, and construction for the majority of the conveyance system (the pumps and pipes) will also begin in 2018. The Clover Point Pump Station and the Macaulay Point Pump Station began construction in spring 2018 and construction of the Clover Forcemain and Residual Solids Conveyance Line will begin in fall 2018.
