All major components of the Wastewater Treatment Project are currently under construction and significant progress has been made. The Project remains on schedule to be complete by the end of 2020 to meet the federal and provincial regulations for wastewater treatment. There are construction activities in three municipalities: Esquimalt, Saanich and Victoria.
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. Work is continuing on this segment for public amenities, restoration and the cycle path along the route. Construction of the remainder of the conveyance system began in early 2019, including the Residual Solids Conveyance Line and the Arbutus Attenuation Tank.
