Last week (April 3 - 8, 2017), the SLRD replaced the biofilter for the Britannia Beach Wastewater Treatment Plant.
A biofilter controls odour from the foul air streams caused by the wastewater plant.
All the old composted bark screenings were replaced with fresh bark mulch.
Annual maintenance and weekly inspections will prolong the life of the biofilter, and ensure that only fresh air comes from the wastewater treatment plant from now on.
Thanks to Kalen Heidenreich of Adler Construction, the contractor on this project.
