Harbour Resource Partners has been awarded a $272 million contract to build the wastewater treatment plant at McLoughlin Point.

The contract includes the construction of three main components — a cross-harbour undersea forcemain between Ogden Point and McLoughiln Point, a marine outfall for treated wastewater at McLoughlin Point, and of course, construction of the tertiary plant.

Harbour Resource Partners is a consortium of firms including AECOM Canada, Graham Infrastructure, HDR|CEI, SUEZ, Graham Capital and Michels Canada, and is the same consortium selected for the first failed attempt to build a sewage treatment plant in 2014.

A public information meeting on the project was held at the Hotel Grand Pacific Wednesday night. A second one is scheduled for Esquimalt residents next Wednesday at the Royal Canadian Legion.

Construction on the $765-million facility is slated to begin this month.

More to come….
