All major components of the Wastewater Treatment Project are in the commissioning (or testing) phase. The Project remains on schedule to be complete by the end of 2020 to meet the federal and provincial regulations for wastewater treatment. 

Construction began in spring 2017 at the McLoughlin Point Wastewater Treatment Plant in Esquimalt. In early 2018, construction started on parts of the conveyance system for the Clover Point Pump Station, the Macaulay Point Pump Station and the Residuals Treatment Facility at Hartland Landfill. Work on Dallas Road for the Clover Forcemain began later in 2018 and pipe installation was completed in August 2019. Construction for the Residuals Solids Conveyance Line and Arbutus Attenuation Tank began in early 2019. The last component of the project to begin construction was the Trent Forcemain, which began in early 2020.

The majority of construction for the Wastewater Treatment Project is complete with the focus shifting to commissioning (or testing). Construction of the Trent Forcemain and the Arbutus Attenuation Tank is expected to be completed in early 2021.
