Clearford completes commissioning of first fully operational Clearford One™ system in Ontario
The potable water network installed in a common trench with the sewer system is also complete and fully operational.
OTTAWA, Feb. 22, 2016 -- Clearford Water Systems Inc. today announced that it held a commissioning ceremony for its Clearford One™ installation at Fetherston Park in North Grenville Ontario which is now commissioned and operating within all Ontario Ministry of Environment and Climate Change (MOECC) regulatory requirements.
As announced in a Clearford press release on January 29th, 2016, the system is currently collecting and treating all sanitary sewage for 38 permanent residences, with capacity to service 46. The potable water network installed in a common trench with the sewer system is also complete and fully operational. Both the potable water and wastewater treatment plants include ultra violet purification using the Hallet® system designed and manufactured by UV Pure Technologies Inc. of Toronto, a subsidiary of Clearford.
In the summer of 2013 the Municipality of North Grenville issued a notice to the residents that it would close the park and evict residents due to public health concerns related to the failed wastewater system. Clearford has provided a unique solution which has allowed the residents of Fetherston to revitalize the Park and maintain their homes. "We are very pleased with the speed we were able to commission this plant and see it operating in full compliance with MOECC regulations " said Clearford CEO Kevin Loiselle "This is the first Clearford One™ installation in Ontario and we are looking forward to using this site to demonstrate the versatility of our packaged wastewater management solution " he continued.
Clearford hosted the commissioning event at the site on February 19, 2016 which was attended by the residents, representatives of the municipality, its subcontractors and suppliers who installed the system and the operators of the system. A grand opening event will follow in the summer of 2016.
