With the Malahat Corridor Improvement Project, the BC Ministry of Transportation & Infrastructure has been improving the safety of Hwy 1 by installing a median barrier and other upgrades. The stretch of highway which runs through Goldstream Provincial Park is challenging to design solutions for, as it is constrained by the river immediately running next to it, and by park lands on both sides.
McElhanney was hired to update View Royal’s sanitary system models to reflect current operating conditions, assess existing system conditions and service life, and prepare a capital plan list to prioritize short- and long-term upgrades.
McElhanney developed six options for Upland’s separate sewer and stormwater systems with service to each residence. The District is focused on eliminating combined system overflows and reducing overall volume to the regional system.
