New Wastewater Treatment Plant opens in Picton

Ontario East

State-of-the-art technology featured in $26 million facility

It has been a while in coming, but the new wastewater treatment plant is finally up and running in Picton.

The plant has been on the drawing board since 2004, and replaces a plant that was originally built in 1947.

The new plant’s 26 million dollar cost was shared by the federal, provincial and municipal governments, with Ottawa and the province each contributing $5.1 million. Another $11 million came from the federal Green Municipal Fund.

The state-of-the-art- plan combines new technology and energy efficiency. “It will provide a higher level of treatment than the existing plant, improve wastewater quality and allow for more sustainable future development and growth within the Picton area.” says Prince Edward-Hastings MP Daryl Kramp.
