The Government of Manitoba has issued the City of Winnipeg an Environment Act License requiring the treatment of nutrients (nitrogen (N) and Phosphorus (P)) among other requirements at the SEWPCC. The implementation of Biological Nutrient Removal (BNR) will require a major plant upgrade and expansion. Also, the population within the SEWPCC service area is growing and will necessitate an effluent capacity upgrade.

The project will address the BNR effluent quality limits and increased capacity requirements. In October of 2017, NAC Constructors was awarded a $180-million contract to build, upgrade, modify, and reconfigure several elements of the project. The entire project is scheduled for completion in September of 2021.
