The next phase in local development for this project is upgrading the original facility’s entire capacity of 12,000 m3/d to the “Organica Water standard,” creating not only an increased amount of fresh water supply for the area but also implementing a highly efficient solution on a large scale to the citizens of the region.
Over the last year, the facility has been operating on the existing Verulam wastewater treatment plant site and continues to pave the way for major, innovative upgraded projects that address current city challenges with the potential to address additional facilities within the municipality that are also reaching their capacity.
The Organica water Verulam facility was proud to have been awarded 2nd place in the 2018 IMESA Environment and Climate Change category. The treatment plant received this award because of its outstanding demonstration in civil engineering and its showcasing of ways in which engineering enhances the lives of local communities, as well as architectural achievements through innovation, design and/or construction.
Oscar Palomino, Senior Proposal Manager at Organica Water commented “an Organica-powered facility is more than just a wastewater treatment plant. It is also a water reclamation garden, educational facility, and symbol of sustainability in the community that enables cost-efficient water reuse and allows for maximized development opportunities – particularly in populated areas where footprint and odor are significant concerns.”
