Comstock Canada, a subsidiary of EMCOR Group, Inc., has received a contract from the City of Toronto for a de-chlorination upgrade project at the Humber Wastewater Treatment Plant, the City of Toronto’s second largest wastewater treatment plant, and one of the largest such plants in Canada.
Comstock will serve as the general contractor on this project and will self-perform all of the electrical and mechanical construction. This work, mandated by the feds, will involve the upgrading of the plant by installing a de-chlorination process to comply with new regulations relating to the discharge of treated water into Lake Ontario. Scope of work will include modifying the existing chlorine-building workshop to house new chemical feed pumps and a chlorination/de-chlorination pilot plant simulator system.
Additional work will include installation of a new sampling pump station. Comstock will also upgrade the plant’s power distribution system, lighting, and instrumentation. The applicable laws require the project be completed by April 30, 2010.
