Capital Regional District Residuals Treatment Facility

In February 2018, Synagro announced the Hartland Resource Management Group (HRMG) had executed a contract to design, build, finance, operate and maintain the residuals treatment facility for the Capital Regional District (CRD). Synagro is the majority equity holder in HRMG. Synagro will also be the service provider for the project and upon service commencement will partner with the CRD for a 20-year operations-and-maintenance term comprising responsibility for producing a thermally dried biosolids product in the form of granules.

The CRD is the regional government for 13 municipalities and three electoral areas on southern Vancouver Island and the nearby Gulf Islands, in British Columbia, Canada. This is a public-private partnership, or P3, project in Canada, and is part of the CRD’s Wastewater Treatment Project. The facility will process the residual waste material from the McLoughlin Point Wastewater Treatment Plant to meet environmental regulatory requirements.
