New Wastewater Treatment Plant Outfall Pipeline - Sydney, NS

The proposed project will involve minor dredging of loose silt in the exact location where the outfall will be placed, followed by the placement of the prefabricated outfall pipe on the harbour bottom. The outfall pipe measures 600mm and will be covered with armor stone for protection. The project area will expand over 300 square meters. The treated effluent that will be discharged through this outfall pipe will eliminate three untreated raw sewages that currently discharges into the harbour via three existing outfalls.
