The newly constructed engineered wetland provides secondary treatment of wastewater, is cost-effective and has greatly improved the water quality discharged into the Gander River. This project was the Atlantic winner of the Watershed Awards, which recognizes community climate change adaptation efforts and is awarded by Insurance Bureau of Canada and the Federation of Canadian Municipalities. Check out this great video to see how the engineered wetland works. Video provided by the Insurance Bureau of Canada.
