    Kemptville WPCP Optimization & Expansion Class Environmental Assessment

Kemptville WPCP Optimization & Expansion Class Environmental Assessment

The Kemptville Water Pollution Control Plant (WPCP) is a conventional activated sludge (CAS) wastewater treatment plant servicing the Municipality of North Grenville and provides tertiary level treatment for sanitary wastewater. The plant optimization and expansion project was proposed to satisfy the expectant needs and developmental pressures of the growing community based on findings reported in the North Grenville Water and Wastewater Servicing Master Plan. As the project team lead, XCG Consultants Ltd. completed a Class Environmental Assessment (EA) for the expansion and optimization of the Kemptville WPCP.

    Review / Upgrade of SCADA System for Water & Wastewater Treatment Plants

Review / Upgrade of SCADA System for Water & Wastewater Treatment Plants

The City of Hamilton required a review and upgrade of the Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system for all of their water and wastewater treatment plants and outstations. The City wanted a system that was consistent for all facilities and that also met the requirements for each. XCG Consultants were part of a team for this project, together with Eramosa Engineering, Poisson Engineering and Weston Engineering.

    Development of Future Effluent Limits & Assessment of Upgrade Options

Development of Future Effluent Limits & Assessment of Upgrade Options

The Mountview and Golden Pheasant Wastewater Treatment Plants (WWTPs) provide wastewater treatment for the Town of Huntsville in the District Municipality of Muskoka. The Mountview WWTP is a conventional activated sludge (CAS) plant with a Certificate of Approval (CofA) rated capacity of 3,640 m3/d; and the Golden Pheasant WWTP is a tertiary treatment facility with a CofA rated capacity of 4,456 m3/d.

New Tecumseth TP Offset

The Town of New Tecumseth owns and operates three wastewater treatment plants (WWTP’s). The WWTP’s include the Tottenham WWTP, servicing the community of Tottenham, the Regional WWTP, servicing a portion of Alliston and the town of Beeton, and the Alliston WWTP, servicing the remainder of Alliston. The Town of New Tecumseth is expecting to experience significant growth. To ensure sufficient wastewater treatment capacity, a Class Environmental Assessment (EA) was completed in 2005 by another consultant. A key recommendation was the decommissioning of the Tottenham WWTP and pumping the effluent to the Regional WWTP. However, significant performance improvements were subsequently achieved at the Tottenham WWTP, and because of the high capital cost of the preferred alternative identified in the 2005, the Town commenced an update of the Class EA including review of the preferred alternative selected in 2005. A key element was an updated assessment of the impacts of various options on surface water quality.

    Re-Habilitation of the Port McNicoll MBR Wastewater Treatment Plant

Re-Habilitation of the Port McNicoll MBR Wastewater Treatment Plant

The Port McNicoll WWTP was commissioned as the first full-scale membrane bioreactor in Ontario in 2001. Immediately after commissioning, it became apparent that the plant capacity was limited under peak flow conditions and that the plant as designed could not service the design population. Bypasses of peak wet weather flows in cold weather were necessary to prevent overflows from the bioreactors.
