Best practices for meeting Canadian municipal wastewater regulations from FCM

July 11, 2018

Are you looking for technical information and examples of best practices to help you with your municipality's wastewater treatment initiative?

FCM has developed case studies to help Canadian municipalities of all sizes meet the wastewater regulations implemented by the federal government.

The case studies provide valuable information you can apply to your own wastewater treatment plant projects and upgrades. They include technical information, project details, tips on best practices and the significant benefits gained by community members.

Read the case studies to learn the steps you can take to:

  • Upgrade, retrofit or replace your wastewater treatment system;
  • Increase capacity and extend the service life of your wastewater treatment plant;
  • Improve wastewater quality, reduce odour levels and eliminate chemical residues; and
  • Learn about alternative ways to minimize energy use. 

Each study also includes contact information so you can connect with people who have firsthand experience overcoming specific challenges and obstacles in these initiatives. Connect with them to ask for advice on projects in your municipality.
