Glenda Holmes, Water Works Manager, explains how a feasibility study helped the City of Yorkton ramp up the environmental benefits of its new water treatment plant by treating the wastewater it produced.
When construction of the new plant began in 2007, the city undertook a study to explore whether it could take its investment further by cleaning and reusing the backwash water and seek out ways to make the most of the green space available on the site.
The project involved widespread stakeholder and community consultation. Through strong project management provided by the City’s Environmental Services department, the project was divided into two phases, one consisted of the settling ponds, wetlands, trout pond and recharge area, and the second consisted of the sporting fields and walking paths.
