Water resource recovery facilities

Our G.E. Booth, Clarkson, and Inglewood facilities collectively treat nearly 660 million litres of wastewater daily.

Water resource recovery is a process that removes contaminants from wastewater or sewage and converts it into an effluent that can be returned to the water cycle with minimum impact on the environment.

Peel has some of the largest and smallest water resource recovery facilities in the country.

The Inglewood Water Resource Recovery Facility is an extremely small facility in comparison to its two sister facilities on Lake Ontario. Inglewood receives roughly 0.02% of Peel's total flow. Clarkson and G.E. Booth receive over 5000 times more sewage than their smaller sister facility.

Clarkson and G.E. Booth treat wastewater through conventional liquids treatment and biosolids management.

Inglewood treats wastewater through a comminutor (a machine that cuts up solids in raw sewage in preparation for purifying treatment), screens and biological treatment tanks.
