Sault Ste. Marie, plaque unveiled to signify the upgrading of the City's East End Water Pollution Control Plant nearly completed.

The City of Sault Ste. Marie and its Provincial and Federal partners unveiled a plaque to signify that the upgrading of the City’s East End Water Pollution Control Plant is nearly completed. This important $52 M project has transformed the former primary treatment facility to secondary treatment. The facility utilizes biological nutrient removal (BNR), the first of its kind in Ontario to provide biological phosphorus removal together with removal of ammonia and nitrogen. The BNR process combined with the use of ultraviolet light for disinfection dramatically reduces the quantity of chemicals used relative to conventional treatment processes. Earth Tech was the project lead and TSH’s role included preliminary and detail design and construction administration and inspection for overall electrical servicing, new administration building, inlet works, disinfection facility, standby power systems, yard piping, site works and a new 1600 mm diameter, 1.1 km long outfall into the St. Mary’s River.
