Chapleau Updates Water Treatment Plant
The Township of Chapleau has upgraded aging infrastructure at its water treatment facility, using investments from the Canada Community-Building Fund.
Chapleau’s water treatment plant was opened in 1976. As of 2020, the original piping and valves were still being used at the plant. A full inspection and review of the infrastructure determined some of the pipes and valves were degrading from the outside.
In 2021, Chapleau invested more than $119,000 in CCBF funding into installation of new process piping, valves and fittings.
The Township of Chapleau also proactively installed a new bypass line at the plant, to ensure staff can isolate parts of the plant for future maintenance.
