Chestermere partners with local companies to pilot innovations in wastewater processing
Most of us don’t think twice about what happens when we flush the toilet, but for the folks at MAGNA Engineering and Eco-Growth Environmental Inc., they see it as a fountain of opportunity.
Currently, most sewer treatment in North America is done through large scale, chemical-based processes, but these two companies are seeking to change that. By partnering with the City of Chestermere, they are piloting new, green approaches that will treat sewage through engineered wetlands and dehydration technology.
“In Chestermere, we are all about seeking to be and do amazing things,” says Chestermere Mayor Marshall Chalmers. “For that reason, we are very happy to partner with MAGNA Engineering and Eco-Growth Environmental to find new, environmentally sustainable ways to handle municipal waste as well as support local business initiatives. We are hopeful that upon a successful pilot, we can help set new standards for environmental stewardship in municipalities across Canada.”
