New Lions Gate Secondary Wastewater Treatment Plant gets fundingNew Lions Gate Secondary Wastewater Treatment Plant gets funding<div class="ExternalClass99AE74B8FD4243DA934E4DCB4CCDF124"><p>The long-awaited Lions Gate Secondary Wastewater Treatment Plant is on its way to becoming a reality after the federal and provincial governments announced this month they would provide up to $405 million in joint funding toward construction of the $700-million project.</p><p>The current Lions Gate Wastewater Treatment Plant is required to be updated to secondary treatment no later than December 2020, as per federal regulation and Metro Vancouver’s own Integrated Liquid Waste and Resource Management Plan. The old plant will be decommissioned once a new one is built.</p><p>The new facility will be designed to meet the latest seismic standards, and account for future sea-level rise, while incorporating leading-edge technologies in integrated resource recovery, greenhouse-gas reductions and energy use.</p><p>Water will be conserved and reclaimed within the plant and rainwater harvested outside the plant for reuse. The plant will also become an important community asset, featuring a pedestrian-scaled public entrance with outdoor open space, a highly visible energy centre, and several other spaces – indoors and out – that support public education and outreach in water use and sustainable water infrastructure.</p><p>The provincial government has announced up to $193 million in funding for the project, while the federal government has committed up to $212.3 million. Metro Vancouver will be responsible for any remaining costs.</p><p>For more info: <a href="/services/liquid-waste/construction-maintenance/north-shore-wwtp/procurement-funding/Pages/default.aspx" target="_blank">http://heimat-deutschland.info/services/liquid-waste/consultations/lions-gate-wwtp/procurement-funding/Pages/default.aspx</a></p><p>​</p><p>Photo: <em>From left to right: The Hon.
