Updating of report on Kent’s Wastewater Treatment Plant

Opus DaytonKnight Consultants Ltd. hired to update report done in 2008

The District of Kent is ensuring the Wastewater Treatment Plant will be well-managed for years to come with an updated report coming down the pipes.

The District hired Opus DaytonKnight Consultants Ltd. (Opus) to update a report the company made in 2008. The report has become outdated over the last seven years due to some changes. At the time of the initial report, there was discussion about Harrison Hot Springs and the two federal correctional facilities located within the district connecting to the District’s plant. There were also proposed upgrades listed in the report that have since been completed, including a program for inflow and infiltration reduction, UV disinfection, a modification to one of the sludge digesters to increase processing capacity and a new rotary drum sludge thickener.

Based on the 2008 report, the treatment plant capacity is “more than sufficient” for projected growth in Agassiz up to the year 2028, according to Opus.

The proposal from Opus includes looking at growth projections for the District of Kent based on the Official Community Plan, identifying upgrade priorities and project goals, visiting the treatment plant and revising the report. The update to the report is expected to take up to eight weeks.

The contract cost $28,000 plus taxes.
