WATER STEWARDSHIP FORUM 2: Introducing a Solar Aquatics Water Reclamation Centre
The District of Barriere recently constructed the Barriere Solar Aquatics Water Reclamation Centre and associated wastewater collection system. This was done with a 100 percent Innovation Gas Tax Grant along with District gas tax reserve monies. This unique double-walled 3,000 sq. ft. greenhouse utilizes plants in the wastewater processing stream.
A project team funded through Rural Dividend and Community Futures, has drafted and are in the first stages of implementing an Operational Sustainability Plan. The plan involves achieving financial net-zero costs for the ongoing operation of this facility, with a focus on Agri-Business, Education, Research, and Tourism.
