ECOfluid Systems Gets 2 WWTP Contracts
ECOfluid Systems has been awarded two separate contracts to supply wastewater treatment facilities at popular resorts in Whistler and the Okanagan, in British Columbia, according to a Sept. 17 press release. The company is based in Burnaby.
Justin Hebner, marketing manager, said the contracts continue to show the popularity of the USBF™ technology among private developers. "The modularity of design allows owners to stage plant development and ensures that plants can quickly expand if and when growth demands, significantly reducing immediate capital costs."
At both locations high quality effluent was stipulated: less than 10 mg/l biochemical oxygen demand/total suspended solids and less than 400 Most Probable Number/100ml fecal coliform. To meet these requirements, the wastewater treatment plants will use the patented technology followed by ultraviolet disinfection in Whistler and chlorination using hypochlorite tablets in the Okanagan.
Work is expected to be completed by the third quarter of 2009.
