The City of Dawson and Yukon government announced yesterday that a contract has been signed with Vancouver-based Corix Water Systems for the design and construction of a wastewater treatment plant for Dawson.
“On behalf of my constituents, I am particularly happy to see this project making real progress towards solving a long-standing issue for this community,” Klondike Region MLA Steve Nordick said. “Many hours of careful research and collaboration have gone into selecting a technology that will meet Dawson’s needs for a long-term, sustainable, and affordable solution.”
Representatives from the City of Dawson, Yukon government and Corix Water Systems will be present at the groundbreaking ceremony. Discussions among the three parties will now begin to finalize the design of the plant and proceed with an environmental assessment. A technical briefing will take place in the coming weeks to share more in-depth project details.
