Originally built in the late 1950s to handle an average flow of 2 million gallons per day (mgd), the G.E. Booth (Lakeview) Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) is a key facility for the Region of Peel. In 2009, the facility underwent a $260 million expansion to treat 137 mgd from the more than 1.3 million residents and 90,000 commercial businesses in the eastern section of Mississauga, Brampton, Bolton, and Caledon East.
Now expected to effectively meet the area’s waste water treatment needs until at least 2031, the expanded Lakeview WWTP includes a new headworks facility, enhanced nitrification, a new biosolids handling facility and additional incinerator capacity. Upon completion of the project, Lakeview became the largest perforated-plate screening facility in North America and the largest fluidized-bed biosolids incineration facility in the world.
