 Water / Waste Water Upgrades

Description: With funding from the federal/provincial Clean Water and Wastewater Fund (, the City is undertaking a series of projects to improve municipal infrastructure. The projects include:

Trenton Water Treatment Plant Backwash - A floating decant system (including a decant pump and controls) will be installed in the Trenton Water Treatment Plant's (WTP) backwash waste tanks. This decant system will remove the clear water from the tank and discharge it to the nearby Trent River so that minimum waste is sent to the WWTP. Currently, approximately 6% of the total flow (approx. total flow is 12000 cu.m) to the WWTP is process water, generated from the Trenton WTP. The new decant system would, on average, result in a net reduction of flow to the plant of 400 cubic meters per day and optimization of the City's asset.

Parry Drive Watermain Looping -  The Batawa Development Corporation (BDC) is proceeding with a residential subdivision at the north end of Fraser Drive in Batawa. As part of their development requirements, they are required to extend a water main from the bulk water station to Fraser Drive, along Parry Drive. The extension of this water main gives the City a unique opportunity to partner with the BDC and the developer and loop this water main to Sidney Crescent. The installation of 270 m of 200 mm pvc watermain would provide additional flows for firefighting, improve water quality, address future growth pressures, and provide a backup supply in the event of a break.

New Mixing System for Trenton Wastewater Plant Sludge Storage - In an effort to reduce biosolids production destined for land application, or third party storage, the City will install a Linear Motion Mixer in the Trenton Waster Water Plant Sludge Storage Tank. The current mixing system relies on a set of pumps to remove sludge from the bottom of the tank and discharging it from a pipe at the top of the tank. This mixing system has proven inadequate for both biosolids thickening and plant operations. If biosolids production can be reduced by approximately 50% (as estimated by the equipment supplier), this would result in cost savings of approximately $375,000 per year and optimization of the system.

New hydro feed to the Dundas Street Pumping Station - In order to facilitate future upgrades to the Dundas Street Sewage Pumping Station, replacement of the current hydro system is required. This work will include the installation of a new transformer and underground primary feeder lines, permit future upgrades of the Dundas Street Pumping Station and provide continued reliability in the power supply to the existing station.

Grant Funding: $1,838,594

Overall Budget: $2,790,000
