The Township of Langley, B.C. is set to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by installing a thermal recovery pump system, with the help of a joint federal-provincial investment of $67,000.

The new system for the Aldergrove Water Treatment Plant will consist of a new thermal recovery pump system that will take heat from the groundwater that is processed through the plant, reducing the reliance on natural gas at the plant.

This project is one of 41 projects across the province that will break ground quickly due to a joint federal-provincial investment of $110 million.
