A request for qualifications has been issued for the McLoughlin Point Wastewater Treatment Plant Project.
The document invites interested parties to submit their qualifications to design and construct the wastewater treatment plant. The closing date is May 10.
The Capital Regional District expects to shortlist three proponents by June and will invite them to submit proposals. A preferred proponent is expected to be chosen by the end of the year, with construction to begin by spring 2014.
The CRD says the successful proponent will be required to have a financial stake in the project during construction and for a two-year “performance-proving period” after it goes into service.
The treatment system, budgeted at $783 million, is set to go online in 2018.
The treatment plant will be owned and operated by the CRD. — Times Colonist
