No Compromise On Reliability: A WWTP Turns On A Dime

Once discovering its main pump station was at risk, a critical Canadian wastewater treatment plant quickly set up a large bypass pumping system to allow the replacement of pump motors.

The Robert O. Pickard Environmental Center (ROPEC) is the wastewater treatment plant for the city of Ottawa, handling over 111 mgd of raw sewage. ROPEC provides secondary level treatment (physical and biological) of domestic, commercial, and industrial wastewater, before the treated effluent is returned to the Ottawa River.
