Bishop Water nominated for 2020 Water’s Next award

Bishop Water has been selected as a finalist for a 2020 Water’s Next Award in the category of Projects and Technology: Early Adoption. 

The nomination recognizes the use of Bishop BioCord™ Reactors to cost-effectively extend the life of the Limoges Wastewater Treatment Facility in the Nation Municipality near Ottawa, ON. 

This simple, low-energy process enabled the Nation Municipality to avoid the high cost of replacing the lagoons with a complex mechanical treatment plant. 

Sixty BioCord reactors will be installed directly into two new lagoon cells that will be created by dividing a large existing cell. Baffle curtains will also be added into the new cells to direct the flow of wastewater through a channel of BioCord Reactors, increase the retention time and prevent short-circuiting.

This configuration provides significant reductions in capital costs since no increase in lagoon footprint or addition of sidestream process tanks are needed for the BioCord system to enhance the secondary treatment process. BioCord’s modular, scalable design also enables secondary treatment capacity to be easily expanded by simply installing additional reactors to achieve the required performance.

With an optimized BioCord system, wastewater lagoons can accept greater nutrient loading, decrease retention times and improve effluent quality—especially in cold-weather conditions, when treatment typically becomes more difficult for conventional lagoon systems.

Winners will be announced during the Canadian Water Summit virtual event on June 11, 2020 by Water Canada and the Canadian Water and Wastewater Association (CWWA). More information and tickets are available here.

Wish us luck!
