District of Sicamous council has awarded $199,878 to Stantec to provide engineering services for the Wastewater Treatment Plant upgrade.

Chief administrative officer Evan Parliament says the district is building capacity at the plant.

“In summer the population balloons to 10,000 people and also the houseboats are using the plant,” he said. “This is all about treating more waste and we’re employing new technology.”

The new technology pleases Mayor Terry Rysz as well.

“We hired the outfit that can give us the best bang for our buck,” he said, noting the water treatment plant is up and running. “Now the wastewater plant’s improvement, with federal and provincial dollars, will set the district up well.”
