The wastewater system will be controlled and monitored 24/7 and the “state-of-the-art facility” is said to have 24-hour odour control monitoring, creating no “discernible odour in the community.”
“This state-of-the-art facility means a cleaner future for the region. Our government will continue to support initiatives like this one that protect our environment and create jobs for generations to come,” said B.C. Premier John Horgan in a written statement.
The majority of construction is complete on the major components of the Wastewater Treatment Project, however, construction continues on the Trent Forcemain and Arbutus Attenuation Tank – tanks being built to increase the capacity of the conveyance system – and is expected to be complete in spring 2021.
“The CRD would like to thank the Lekwungen speaking peoples, known today as Songhees and Esquimalt Nations, for their support of the Wastewater Treatment Project, much of which is located on their traditional territories. The CRD would also like to thank the W̱SÁNEĆ Nations as the Residuals Treatment Facility and parts of the conveyance system are located within their traditional territories,” reads a statement from the CRD.
According to the CRD, the Residuals Treatment Facility turns residual solids from the McLoughlin Point Wastewater Treatment Plant into Class A biosolids. The biosolids will be transported to the Lower Mainland where they will be used as an alternative fuel source for a cement manufacturing facility.
The CRD adds that it is currently in the process of determining a long-term biosolids strategy.
The Wastewater Treatment Project is funded by the Government of Canada ($211 million), the Government of British Columbia ($248 million) and the Capital Regional District ($316 million).
