Waterloo Biofilter system wins Environmental Award of Excellence
A Waterloo Biofilter system designed by J. R. Cousin Consultants Ltd. for Manitoba Parks has won the 2011 Environmental Award of Excellence given by the Manitoba Association of Consulting Engineering Companies.
The White Lake Campground in Whiteshell Provincial Park was in need of a new wastewater treatment system to replace the septic field, which had failed and was decommissioned in 2008. Temporary holding tanks were installed on site, with ongoing pumping and truck hauling, however a permanent and more sustainable solution for wastewater management was essential for the environmentally sensitive parkland area.
JRCC utilized the Waterloo Biofilter wastewater treatment system for biological filtration, followed by UV disinfection, to produce high quality effluent with field dispersal. The Waterloo Biofilter onsite sewage system can be remotely controlled and monitored.
The White Lake Campground now has an energy efficient, environmentally sound, sustainable, and technologically advanced effluent treatment and disposal system. This system is the largest Waterloo Biofilter installation in Manitoba and will provide a safe and long-term solution for the Parks and Natural Areas Branch.
