    Construction of a residuals treatment facility as part of WWTP project.

    The governments of Canada, British Columbia and the Capital Regional District (CRD) are working together on a wastewater treatment project that will provide tertiary treatment for wastewater from the core area municipalities of Victoria, Esquimalt, Saanich, Oak Bay, View Royal, Langford and Colwood, and the Esquimalt and Songhees Nations.

    The project consists of the Residuals Treatment Facility (RTF) at Hartland Landfill in the Saanich area of Victoria, the McLoughlin Point Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) in Esquimalt, and the conveyance system that will carry wastewater from across the core area to the treatment plant and residual solids to the RTF. Residual solids will be treated at the RTF and turned into Class A biosolids (fertiliser).

    On 1st December 2016, the Core Area Wastewater Treatment Project Board released a Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for the RTF. On 10th April 2017, it was announced that three qualified teams had been shortlisted to participate in the Request for Proposals (RFP) stage: Hartland Resource Management Group (HRMG; Synagro Technologies Inc, Bird Capital Limited Partnership, Bird Design-Build Construction Inc, Maple Reinders Constructors Ltd and Maple Reinders PPP Ltd); Harbour Resource Partners (AECOM, Graham Capital and SUEZ) and Hartland Biosolids Partners (Acciona, Axium Intrastructure and Brookfield Financial Securities).

    On 12th December 2017, HRMG was announced as the preferred proponent for the project and the consortium has since achieved financial close. On 6th February 2018, CRD entered into a contract with HRMG to design, build, finance, operate and maintain (DBFOM) the RTF under a public-private partnership model. Synagro is the majority equity holder in HRMG. Synagro will also be the service provider for the project and upon service commencement will partner with the CRD for a 20-year operations and maintenance term comprising responsibility for producing a thermally dried biosolids product in the form of granules. The facility will have a capacity to treat over 14,000 dry tonnes of residuals per year over the 20-year term of the contract. The capital cost of the facility is C$126.8 million.

    Construction is anticipated to begin in spring 2018, with the project slated for completion in winter 2020.

    The RTF will use an anaerobic digestion process followed by a dryer process to produce a dried Class A biosolid. The dryer will be fuelled by biogas generated during the digestion process. The dried product will look similar to a dark ash and will be suitable for several beneficial re-uses, including as an alternative energy source. The ultimate use of these biosolids will be determined by a separate planning process which is being considered by the Integrated Resource Management (IRM) Advisory Committee of the CRD Board. The CRD will continue to engage with the Province, First Nations and the public throughout the IRM planning process, and will produce a definitive plan for the beneficial reuse of biosolids by 30th June 2019.

    The CRD is the regional government for 13 municipalities and three electoral areas on southern Vancouver Island and the nearby Gulf Islands, in British Columbia, serving more than 383,000 citizens.

    WWTP Project

    On 5th April 2017, the CRD reported that Harbour Resource Partners has been awarded a C$272 million contract to build the WWTP, which includes the construction of three main components: a 108 MI/d tertiary WWTP located at McLoughlin Point; a cross-harbour undersea forcemain between Ogden Point and McLoughlin Point; and a marine outfall for treated wastewater at McLoughlin Point.

    The Wastewater Treatment Project costs C$765 million and is being funded by:

    • Government of Canada - up to C$120 million through the Building Canada Fund for the McLoughlin Point Wastewater Treatment Plant; up to C$50 million through the Green Infrastructure Fund for the conveyance system; up to C$41 million from P3 Canada for the RTF.
    • Government of British Columbia - up to C$248 million for the three components of the project.
    • The Capital Regional District - the remaining C$306 million for the three project components; responsible for any additional costs.
