Kanata-based Clearford Water Systems has been contracted to supply the wastewater treatment facility for the new Amazon warehouse on Boundary Road.
The one-million-square-foot warehouse in Ottawa’s east end is being built by Broccolini Construction, which selected Clearford to provide the engineering, design and installation of the treatment facility. Broccolini began construction of the warehouse this summer, with a capacity for up to 1,000 Amazon employees fulfilling online orders. The warehouse needs a separate wastewater treatment facility because of its distance from central Ottawa.
Kevin Loiselle, president and CEO of Clearford, said in a press release that the company is looking forward to fulfilling such a significant contract in their own backyard.
“Land developers, businesses and municipalities are all benefitting from the innovative clean technology solutions being developed right here in Ottawa,” said Loiselle.
