Water Treatment Plant Expansion takes major step forward

After years of discussion and debate, the Town of Collingwood and Town of New Tecumseth have broken ground with the expansion of the Raymond A. Barker Water Treatment Plant.

Kenaiden Contracting Ltd will build the expansion. A recognized leader in the industry, Kenaidan provides general contracting, design-build, construction management, and preconstruction services to all sectors of the business world. 

This is a huge undertaking and represents the commitment of so many partners to make available clean safe water for our communities for many years to come.

Collingwood and New Tecumseth have shared treated water for the past 25 years and will continue the partnership. New Tecumseth will shoulder just over 60 percent of the $270 million project’s cost.
