The La Romaine hydropower complex is the largest infrastructure project underway in Canada. Located about 55 km from Havre-Saint-Pierre, over 2 000 workers are living on the premises. The accommodations comprise dormitories, offices, cafeterias, a leisure center, a bar and a convenience store. . As such, and in sync with its sustainable development vision, Hydro-Québec had to comply with stringent discharge standards for the treatment of the wastewater produced by this camp. And wastewater treatment in remote and isolated locations is a significant challenge. Moreover, the wastewater treatment equipment had to be demobilized after use.
