ABOUT THIS PROJECT
Work under this project is the third phase of improvements to the City’s existing sewage treatment facility. This phase is focused on upgrades to the digester, Generator Set and related electrical system.
In large wastewater treatment plants, anaerobic digestion breaks down organic waste. Anaerobic digestion is a sequence of processes by which microorganisms break down biodegradable material in the absence of oxygen. This process is used for industrial or domestic purposes to manage waste.
In 2022, the City awarded a contract to Kinetic Construction Ltd. for the Norm Wood Environmental Centre (NWEC) Upgrade Phase III project. NWEC is the City’s wastewater treatment facility. This project is necessary to improve capacity, maintain treatment levels. and to ensure the facility is modernized in with critical components to meet current demands. This multiyear project was prioritized based on operational and maintenance efficiencies for the plant in 2009 to address community growth. The first phase was completed in 2012 and the second phase was completed in 2016.
Refer to the completed projects page for more information on previous phases.
