CBCL Limited Receives ACEC Canadian Consulting Engineering Award of Excellence

CBCL Limited is pleased to announce that it is the recipient of the 2010 ACEC Canadian Consulting Engineering Award of Excellence (Water Resources & Energy Production Category) for its design of the Tatamagouche Water Treatment Plant in Nova Scotia.

On Tuesday October 26th, 2010, CBCL Limited was bestowed the award at the annual ACEC Awards Ceremony at the Fairmont Chateau Laurier Hotel in Ottawa. The Canadian Consulting Engineering Awards are given to projects that demonstrate a high quality of engineering, imagination and innovation. Now in their 42nd year, the awards are the most prestigious mark of recognition for consulting engineers in Canada.

CBCL Limited President & CEO Michael R. MacDonald was on hand to accept the award on behalf of the firm. "I am very proud of the accomplishments of our firm and its employees" MacDonald said. "Receiving this award from ACEC is recognition of the high level of technical ability and experience that we have achieved in recent years" MacDonald added.

The Tatamagouche Water Treatment Plant uses an innovative treatment process to produce extremely high quality potable water from highly variable source water without the use of chemical coagulants. The treatment process uses two stages of membrane filtration in series; ultrafiltration followed by nanofiltration. This treatment process is the first treatment system in Atlantic Canada using this process and the first municipal treatment system in Canada to use this technology. The treatment process capitalizes on the benefits of each technology separately, combining them to create an optimal water treatment process that assures the complete removal of turbidity and organic matter despite high variances in raw water quality.

The Tatamagouche Water Treatment Plant is owned and operated by the Municipality of the County of Colchester in Nova Scotia. It was designed by CBCL Limited in the period from 2006 - 2007 and was built in 2007 with commissioning early in 2008.
