In May 2021, Winnipeg City Council approved a budget amendment increase of $65 million for the North End Sewage Treatment Plant Upgrade: Power Supply & Headworks Facilities, for a revised project budget of $473 million. In July 2021, the City of Winnipeg awarded Red River Solutions a bid to conduct the Headworks Facilities Project at the North End Sewage Treatment Plan. The scope of work includes the design and construction of a new headworks facility that will include a raw sewage pump station, a micro-tunnel extension of existing interceptor sewers, a grit removal system, a main control room, fine screens and compactors, and a plant emergency generator facility. The project is the first of three projects for upgrading the NEWPCC. Construction is expected to commence in the third quarter of 2021, with expected completion in the second quarter of 2025.
