TrojanUVSwiftECT Installed At Six Nations Of The Grand River Water Treatment Plant

The Six Nations of the Grand River has opened its new water treatment plant, which features the TrojanUVSwift®ECT system. This system is treating water drawn from the Grand River, which receives the water of several municipal wastewater plants upstream of this plant’s water intake.

The raw water is challenging to treat and utilizes membrane filtration and a TrojanUVSwiftECT system to destroy contaminants such as pesticides and taste and odor-causing compounds while providing inactivation of chlorine-resistant microorganisms.

The water treatment plant opened in January 2014 and is capable of supporting up to 7,370 users. Treating water for N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) and taste and odor (T&O), it has a production capacity of 50 L/s, which is almost four times that of the old plant.

The Six Nations reserve is located in Ontario and is bordered by the County of Brant, city of Brantford, Norfolk County, Haldimand County, and has a subsection reservation, the New Credit Reserve located within it boundaries.

Discussions took place between Six Nations council and the Government of Canada for more than a decade about building a new water treatment plant to replace the old infrastructure that was becoming gradually obsolete. Six Nations council also wanted a system that could eventually serve all households and commercial development in Tuscarora Township.

The Government of Canada provided $26 million toward the funding of the project through Canada’s Economic Action Plan as part of an overall plan to invest $189 million on water and wastewater projects in Canada.
