Sydenham Waterworks project officially
was officially opened by Mayor Lake, Township of South
Frontenac, on Saturday, August 21, 2006. The community
of Sydenham was serviced with private wells, many were
contaminated with nitrates and had high bacterial counts.
In order to improve the quality of water to the residents
of Sydneham, staff at TSH were involved with the implementation
of the Sydenham Municipal Waterworks System. The Sydenham
Waterworks system includes a new water treatment plant,
water distribution system and elevated storage tank.
TSH staff were involved in the original Class EA, Design
and Contract Administration for the system. The treatment
plant process includes the first large scale Kinetico
Macrolite treatment system in Ontario which provides
superior filtration versus conventional dual media filters.
The Mayor was especially appreciative
that this project has been completed ON TIME, UNDER
BUDGET and with NO MAJOR PROBLEMS. The four contracts
that make up this $7.7M project have been completed
for $150,000 less than total tender price!
