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 has begun on the McLoughlin Point Wastewater Treatment Plant and the undersea forcemain from Ogden Point to McLoughlin Point. Construction of the Residuals Treatment Facility at Hartland Landfill is anticipated to begin in 2018, and construction for the majority of the conveyance system (the pumps and pipes) will also begin in 2018.

For more detailed information about the construction activities that make up the Wastewater Treatment Project, please follow the links below. These pages will be updated regularly and additional pages will be added as other project components are ready to begin construction.
