CLARENCE-ROCKLAND – September 4, 2020 – The City of Clarence-Rockland is currently undertaking major works on the Wastewater Treatment Plant, located on Industrielle Street in Rockland, as well as on Pumping Station 1, on County Road 17.
The $22 million project includes, among other things, the installation of a preliminary screen at the treatment plant to reduce odours and to allow adequate treatment of wastewater before it is discharged into the Ottawa River. The modernization of Pumping Station 1 and the linking of the wastewater evacuation pipe with the plant will allow the City to continue its growth.
“We would like to thank the Industrial Park business owners for their patience. This project will reduce odour emanation from the treatment plant and improve the quality of life for nearby business people and residents. We also sincerely thank residents for their collaboration during the closures of Industrielle Street and, more recently, County Road 17,” said Mayor Guy Desjardins.
Industrielle Street remains closed due to heavy machinery movement in a small area. It is planned to remain closed until the beginning of next year. A detour route has been set up, directing traffic through De la Berge Road. The construction team is reviewing alternate procedures to reopen the street earlier.
Work began on March 23, 2020, and is scheduled to continue until early 2022.
