Construction crews repair the road on Hamilton River Road in Happy Valley-Goose Bay. A force main line is being installed as part of the ongoing development of the new wastewater treatment plant for the area.
The force main line construction project began last fall. Town Mayor, Leo Abbass, says all three phases of the project are expected to be complete by the end of construction season 2012.
The municipality ran into a bump in the road last year when cost overruns for the project put the project in limbo.
In November, the Federal and Provincial government announced $22.4 Million cost shared agreement with the Municipality to complete the new infrastructure.
**The project includes the design and construction of both a collection system to intercept the wastewater flow from sewage outfalls, and a wastewater lagoon system to treat and disinfect the effluent before discharging it to the environment. The site for the approximately 7.5 hectare facility is a parcel of land north of Mud Lake Road in the Town of Happy Valley-Goose Bay. The project includes the construction of two lift stations and a force main, a building containing a screening and grit removal system, aerated lagoons for secondary treatment of wastewater and an ultraviolet disinfection system.
