Recognizing local leadership in green infrastructure

The Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) is announcing the recipients of the 2016 Sustainable Communities Awards, showcasing the very best in local environmental practices. Canada's municipalities are recognized as consistent drivers of innovation, delivering local actions that lead to national results. 
 
The 2016 FCM Sustainable Communities Awards winner in the Water category is the District of Sechelt’s new Water Resource Centre, a community-friendly facility that uses an advanced odour-free method to turn wastewater into high-quality reclaimed water and biosolids. Located in the middle of town, the new facility exceeds the treatment capacity of the two older wastewater treatment plants it replaces.
