Cataraqui Bay Wastewater Treatment Plant upgrades

It’s been one year since we broke ground on the four-year, $88 million expansion and upgrade of the Cataraqui Bay Wastewater Treatment Plant. 

We wanted to share an update on our progress to increase plant capacity, improve the quality of treated wastewater the plant discharges, and upgrade equipment. Thank you to our contractor North America Construction Ltd. 

Over the past year, efforts focused on constructing buildings for the secondary treatment system and dewatering facility – the building structures are in now place. Next steps include interior work for these buildings, such as mechanical and electrical systems, and treatment equipment installation.

The project work is being completed for Utilities Kingston by North America Construction Ltd. Work on the primary treatment system (buildings and equipment) is slated to begin in the spring of 2018. Check out our web page on this topic for more information and construction photos

By ensuring the reliability of wastewater services and helping to protect Lake Ontario, this project will benefit the community today and generations to come.
