Wastewater Plant Plans Treatment System Upgrade
The Region of Peel, Ontario, encompassing the cities of Mississauga and Brampton in the metro Toronto area, has awarded a contract to Hydroxyl Systems Inc.
The Region of Peel, Ontario, encompassing the cities of Mississauga and Brampton in the metro Toronto area, has awarded a contract to Hydroxyl Systems Inc. for supply of key equipment for the first phase of a major project at the 103 MGD Lakeview Wastewater Treatment Plant. The overall project will upgrade the capacity of the plant to 118 MGD and enhance treatment performance.
The contract award was the result of a competitive bid process, preceded by a comprehensive evaluation of various secondary treatment technologies. The evaluation determined that an upgrade using a hybrid approach of fluidized fixed-film carriers and conventional activated sludge technology, generally referred to as IFAS, was ideal for the expansion of the Lakeview WWTP. This approach enables the municipal wastewater treatment plant to significantly upgrade treatment performance and capacity with minimal downtime or physical modifications to the existing plant.
The project entails the supply of Hydroxyl-Pac media, a proprietary suspended plastic biofilm carrier employed in Hydroxyl's unique Fluidized Fixed-Film and Return Activated Sludge (F_RAS) process. Hydroxyl Systems will also design and supply related equipment for the implementation of the Hydroxyl-F_RAS technology at Lakeview WWTP.
KMK Consultants Limited is providing engineering and project management services for the project. For more information on this project, please visit the Hydroxyl Systems website. http://www.hydroxyl.com/
