After two years of construction, the Cornwall wastewater treatment plant has been completed and the families and businesses in Cornwall, Ontario are finally reaping the benefits of the update.

In addition to increasing the facility’s treatment capacity, the $55.5-million project will now provide a higher level of wastewater disinfection by way of ultraviolet technology and advanced sludge thickening, filtering, and screening processes.

“Our government continues building Ontario up by enhancing economic growth and addressing critical infrastructure needs with long-term strategic investments. The fully upgraded plant will not only protect the environment, but will also ensure the health and safety of residents in Cornwall today, and for generations to come,” said Grant Crack, Member of Provincial Parliament for Glengarry—Prescott—Russell.
