TITLE: Virtual Tour of Capital Regional District Wastewater Treatment Plant

In 2021 the CRD completed the Core Area Waste Water Treatment Project that serves several municipalities in Greater Victoria. This was a $775 million dollar project, which consisted of a number of major elements:
– McLoughlin Point Wastewater Treatment Plant
– Clover Point Pump Station and Forcemain (including Harbour Crossing)
– Macaulay Point Pump Station and Forcemain
– Arbutus Attenuation Tank
– Trent Forcemain
– Residuals Solids Forcemain and three pump stations
– Centrate Return Line
– Residuals Treatment Facility
During the construction of the plant, VIES has been fortunate to get yearly presentations on the various elements of the project. We have a unique opportunity to get a complete virtual tour of the McLoughlin Point Wastewater Treatment Plant. The tour will start with a presentation on the overall project including an overview of engineering challenges and solutions. This will be followed by a guided tour of the Plant where the following processes will be viewed:
– Primary Treatment – lamella plate settlers
– Wet weather primary treatment – high rate clarifiers
– 2 mm Fine Screens
– Secondary treatment – Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor (MBBR) followed by Biological Aeration Filters (BAFs)
– Tertiary treatment – Cloth media disk filters and future UV disinfection
– Foul Air treatment – biotrickling filters and carbon adsorbers
