Value Engineering Study Update

The RDN recently completed a Value Engineering Study to look at ways to:

  • improve the project design
  • provide maximum value to the community.

Based on the results, the RDN Board approved further study on two design alternatives:

  1. Abandon the existing trickling filter because of its high risk for odours. Use a treatment system that produces less odours, like the one at the upgraded Greater Nanaimo Pollution Control Centre.
  2. Use the Qualicum Interceptor to balance flows coming into the plant. The Qualicum Interceptor currently collects all wastewater from the north of the plant.

Follow-up studies on alternatives 1 and 2 will proceed next.
