Wessuc was awarded a 3-year contract with the Region of Durham to manage the cleaning of three lagoons at the Nonquon treatment facility just outside of Port Perry.
Wessuc was hired for the removal and utilization on agricultural land and/or the removal and alternate disposal of the sludge, sediment and weed growth. Wessuc proposed a unique solution with the use of geo-textile bags to dewater over 75,000 m3 over the 3 year period.
Technical Performance- Highlights
Wessuc pumped over 800 gallons per minute through the geo-textile dewatering bags.
Land Application- Highlights
Later in the fall the biosolids were removed from the site, and taken to licensed agricultural sites for beneficial use. In the end, the Region of Durham received a biosolids management award for the use of this innovative technology.
