Liquid Waste

Dockside Green WWTP

Historically liquid waste management has been managed as a cost needed to prevent health and contamination issues. However within an IRM strategy, liquid waste can be processed to produce safe, reusable water, energy and nutrients. This reduces the costs for treatment and improves environmental results. 


A study for three communities recommended a system at $345m project cost. We reviewed the system and found the cost would be $1.1bn.  An equivalent IRM system was projected to be at least $1.14bn better financially, recycling 10% of the community’s water and potentially eliminating liquid waste treatment costs, with superior ecological and environmental results. If further optimized, the project should be capable of being $1.4-1.5bn better.

We led the management of Dockside Green Waste Water Treatment Plant, Victoria, BC, which recycles up to 80% of its wastewater for the project which at buildout, is anticipated will house ≈15,000 people.
