Sewage project’s ‘pumps and pipes’ nearly done

Work on the conveyance system for Greater Victoria’s $775-million sewage-treatment project is more than 90 per cent complete, according to the Capital Regional District.

The CRD described the system as the “pumps and pipes” of the project, which will bring sewage from around the region’s core to the treatment plant, while residual solids go to the Hartland landfill for treatment.

This month, Surrey-based Jacob Bros. Construction won the last major construction contract for the project, which is on schedule to be complete by Dec. 31.

The $6.8-million contract is for the Trent forcemain — a 1.9-kilometre pipe extending from the intersection of Chandler Avenue and St. Charles Street to the Clover Point pump station.
