Efficient energy recovery

Recovered energy from the Capital Regional District’s Saanich Peninsula Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) will be used at four sites.

The heat recovery system utilizes heat pump technology to extract heat from the WWTP final effluent and distribute it to the four user sites.

A new heat delivery sewage pumping station will deliver heated water to these four sites:

  • The WWTP
  • The adjacent Panorama Recreation Centre
  • The adjacent Centre for Plant Health (greenhouse facility)
  • An adjacent elementary school
