Description

Join the PEO Simcoe-Muskoka Chapter for a tour of the Surface Water and Waste Water Treatment Plant!

The first tour will occur at the The Surface Water Treatment Plant (SWTP) at 9:30AM.

The SWTP began supplying water to Barrie in 2011. Surface water is drawn from Lake Simcoe (Kempenfelt Bay) through a pipe nearly 1km from shore and 26m deep. Water is pumped to a low-lift pumping station close to the shoreline, then up to the SWTP at 20 Royal Parkside Drive.

Following the tour of the SWTP, a tour of the Barrie Waste Water Treatment Plant will occur from 11:00AM - 12:00PM.

The City’s Wastewater Treatment Section consists of six major pumping stations and one state-of-the-art Wastewater Treatment Facility (WwTF), which is a tertiary treatment plant that uses ultra violet disinfection to treat all sewage before sending it into Lake Simcoe.

The address to the Waste Water Treatment Plant is:

249 Bradford Street
Barrie, Ontario
L4M 4T5

To ensure the safety of all tour participants, safety shoes (steel toed) are required to be worn at all times during the tour of both the Surface Water and Waste Water Treatment Plants.

There is a nominal charge of $10.00 per interested participant for these tours, and all proceeds will go towards the PEO Simcoe Muskoka Scholarship fund!
