Description

On Thursday, September 25, officials from the City of Regina and EPCOR Water Prairies Inc. provided an update on the construction progress to date at the Wastewater Treatment Plant. “Considerable progress has been made in the design and construction of the Wastewater Treatment Plant, which will ensure that we meet the needs of our growing community,” said Mayor Michael Fougere. “We are thrilled with the progress to date by EPCOR Water Prairies Inc. and we all take pride in improving water quality for Regina and our neighbours.” To date, approximately 260,000 of the 310,000 cubic meters of soil required for excavation at the site has taken place. When completed, the total size of the excavation will equate to 124 Olympic size swimming pools. In total, over 1,000,000 kilograms of reinforcing steel will be used in the bioreactors and 650,000kg of reinforcing steel will be required for secondary clarifiers. A tower crane will be erected next month to construct the concrete basins. “We’re delighted to be here on the ground serving the people of Regina,” said Lee Ward, EPCOR Senior Manager of Project Development. “All the required permits are in place for the construction of the new Wastewater Treatment Plant, we have established a good relationship with the City and the project is progressing well.” The new Wastewater Treatment Plant will be substantially complete in December 2016. To keep track of the progress at the construction site a webcam takes frequent photos that are available at EPCOR.com and Regina.ca.
