The three key goals established for the project include meeting the secondary treatment standard, identifying resource recovery opportunities, and integrating the plant with the surrounding park and community. The Project Definition Phase is being delivered through an Integrative Design Process that brings together a team of technical experts working through a formal design process to identify and evaluate a range of options, assess alternatives using a comprehensive business casing approach, and recommend an indicative design for the new plant. A comprehensive community engagement program will promote community engagement, provide opportunities for input, work with First Nations, and ensure transparency and accountability. The Project Definition Phase will be completed in 2020 following which the work will move into the Design and Construction Phase.
