Description:Sechelt Water Resource Centre – Creativity from idea to outcome. Presenter: Paul Nash, Ph. D., District of Sechelt. Additional Contributors: Sechelt WRC Operations Supervisor, Sechelt, BC; Larry Sawchyn, P.Eng., Tetratech, Richmond, BC; Jean Lambert, PMP, MBA, MHPM, Vancouver, BC; Andrew Ambrozy, Maple Reinders, Kelowna, BC; Marie Meunier, Veolia, Montreal, QC; Urban Systems, BC. The District of Sechelt is a growing community of 9,500 people on the Sunshine Coast. The District is committed to sustainable development. When its two wastewater treatment plants needed replacing to meet capacity and quality demands, the District saw an opportunity to maximize value from a hitherto wasted resource. This resulted in distinct project objectives: • Highest level effluent quality – Indirect Potable Reuse – to enable the widest range of reuse possibilities • Biosolids processing to a Class A product • Innovation in the treatment process, and the project in general • A focus on maximizing the value delivered - social, environmental and financial – instead of minimising costs • A welcome neighbour – noiseless, odourless, and aesthetically pleasing • Highly energy efficient and meet LEED Gold The District’s approach to meeting these objectives embodied creativity throughout, from identifying needs through keeping the project on-track, to commissioning and handover. This panel session will review the project from start to end, including results from the first few months of operation. Panelists include members from all of the organizations involved in realizing this project, including the District (owner and operator), MHPM (the owner’s project manager), Tetra Tech (the owner’s engineer) and the design build team (Maple Reinders - Contractor, Urban Systems – Engineer, and Veolia – Technology Provider). The session includes an interactive component to give attendees the opportunity to contribute their creative ideas, as well as time for Q&As related to the project. This is your chance to discover how pushing the boundaries worked out for Sechelt.
