MAKING CONNECTION: Work is being carried out to connect Wildwood with the consolidated wastewater treatment plant [above] in Townsite.

Commencing December 13, Graham Infrastructure will be starting the first of the conveyance works that will carry liquid effluent from Wildwood down to the under-construction consolidated wastewater treatment plant in Townsite.
