Every time you use water, it has to go somewhere. When you flush a toilet, take a shower, or do the laundry, the wastewater flows into the sanitary sewer system and possibly to one of Peel’s wastewater treatment facilities. All wastewater is treated before it is returned to the environment.
The Region of Peel operates and maintains:
3,203 kilometres of sanitary sewer main
47,332 manholes sanitary sewer services to property line for all connected residential/commercial properties
The G. E. Booth (Lakeview) Wastewater Treatment Facility is located on the shore of Lake Ontario in Mississauga. This plant processes the wastewater from homes and businesses in Bolton, Caledon East, Brampton and the eastern parts of Mississauga. Three trunk sewers lead to the Lakeview plant with the total daily capacity of 448,000 cubic metres of wastewater.
(Safety shoes and hard hats are required during the tour)
Hard hats will be provided by the facility, but safety shoes are the responsibility of the registrant.
