Landry Street Lagoon Rehabilitation

Upgrading the Landry Street lagoon consists of a comprehensive assessment of the existing lagoon, including reducing the size of the lagoon from 3.7 hectares to 2.0 hectares, but increasing the depth from 2 metres to 3 metres, repairing the dikes, adding synthetic membrane, and installing new control structures. In addition, a two-blower aeration system and a fine bubble diffuser air distribution system will be constructed. This will help increase capacity to treat and manage wastewater.

Wastewater System Upgrades

Upgrading the water treatment system consists of replacing the current treatment system with new components which would allow the system to deliver clean effluent. This includes constructing a new, deeper lagoon with a synthetic membrane and two basins, replacing the surface aerators with a system of aeration by fine bubbles, and replacing the outfall sewer and the discharging of the effluent during ebb tide to reduce its impact on the estuary.
