Quinte West Wastewater Treatment Plant

Ever wonder what happens when you flush your toilet? During Doors Open, you can experience a rare opportunity to learn how Quinte West treats its wastewater by taking a tour of this facility. The original plant, commissioned in 1976, was upgraded in 1993 (with tertiary filtration), 2012 (with a sludge holding tank) and again in 2020 (with lifecycle upgrades).
