City of Terrace to moderinze its wastewater plant

Federal and provincial governments helping to finance the project

THE CITY of Terrace is spending just more than $2.8 million to modernize its southside wastewater facilities.

The work includes installing a new screening system for flows entering the wastewater treatment plant and fencing off the plant’s grounds.

A federal grant of $1,327,287 and a provincial grant of $876,009 were announced several months ago for the work and city officials have spent the time since refining the scope of the project.

The city itself is spending $619,965, bringing the total project cost to $2,823,261.

The inlet pipe to the sewage lagoons will also be reconfigured.

Also covered under the project is the replacement of all water, sewer and drainage infrastructure on Kalum Street from Graham to Haugland.

There will also be a modification of the city’s Sparks St. lift station.

As well, the city received a combined federal-provincial $166,000 grant and is adding $34,000 of its own money to examine and design additional water reservoir works to serve the Horseshoe area and Keith Estates, the name given to the city’s plan for mixed residential and commercial development on the former Skeena Cellulose sawmill and log storage area stretching west of the Sande Overpass through Kenney to a privately-held railway spur.
