The modernization work is necessary to guarantee the plant’s proper operation, improve its efficiency, treat the wastewater of 6 additional communes, while anticipating demographic change and tomorrow’s environmental standards.

Residents should not be significantly affected, as the station will continue to operate during the work. We are taking steps to minimize and control the disruption caused by such a project.

Work will start in July 2024, and the process will be phased over a total of 6 years.
