Project update: construction well underway
The Point Lookout Waste Water Treatment Plant Upgrade is well underway with construction expected to be completed in July and wet commissioning conducted in August and September.
This $13.5 million dollar project will ultimately service 4600 residents and visitors at Point Lookout during peak periods. The new plant will provide a minimal impact to the environment and greatly reduce odour concerns. Membrane bioreactor (MBR) technology will ensure a higher quality effluent through ultra-fine screening, denitrification, chemical phosphorous removal, membrane treatment and disinfection. Planning is also underway to sewer remaining areas of Point Lookout that currently use septic tanks.
