AECOM to provide design and engineering services for the Clarkson Water Resource Recovery Facility in Ontario

AECOM (NYSE: ACM), the world’s trusted infrastructure consulting firm, today announced it has been selected by the Regional Municipality of Peel (Peel Region) to provide design and engineering services for the expansion of the Clarkson Water Resource Recovery Facility (WRRF) in Ontario’s Peel Region. AECOM will be responsible for the design and implementation of the expansion, providing increased capacity and flexibility to accommodate the growing population within the Greater Toronto Area.

“As we extend our client relationship with the Peel Region, we’re excited to leverage a continuously strengthening bench of water sector expertise,” said Beverley Stinson, chief executive of AECOM’s global Water business. “As the number one Water design practice as recently ranked by Engineering-News Record, we look forward to bringing our extensive experience borne from an unrivaled portfolio of some of the world’s most complex wastewater projects to bear on the WRRF, which is expected to provide long-lasting positive impacts on residents.”

This will be the third major expansion of the Clarkson WRRF facility and the next stage to bring its capacity to 500 MLD by 2029. AECOM also served as the original designers of the Clarkson WRRF Phase I and II expansions, where its digital capabilities were instrumental in expanding the facility’s SCADA system for automated process control, enabling the client to optimize their operations throughout the entire 20+ year lifecycle.

In addition to the expansion, Phase III will include a new standby power energy center to protect the critical infrastructure of the plant and help maintain treatment during power outages. The design will also feature innovative solutions to support state-of-the-art treatment, including enhanced biological phosphorus removal to reduce chemical use and measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve energy efficiency. These initiatives will support Peel Region’s Energy Policy, which aims to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions at their WRRFs by 2050.

“We are honored to be selected to help realize this critical expansion — the latest of many transformational projects our teams are delivering across the Greater Toronto Area,” said Richard Barrett, chief executive of AECOM’s Canada region. “Having successfully designed prior expansions to this major facility, our teams possess a unique technical understanding of the project and a deep familiarity with the region’s objectives as it seeks to meet the needs of a growing population.”

Other work AECOM is currently delivering for Peel Region includes the Clarkson Cogeneration Expansion, which utilizes waste methane produced in the treatment process to create green electricity, and multiple projects supporting drinking water treatment at the Arthur P. Kennedy and Lorne Park water treatment plants.
