Duffin Creek Water Pollution Control Plant Tour
Join us for a tour of Duffin Creek Water Pollution Control Plant in Pickering. This state of the art facility is capable of treating 630 million litres of wastewater each day. Located on the shores of Lake Ontario in the City of Pickering, it treats wastewater from 80% of the residents and businesses in The Regional Municipality of York and from all of the residents and businesses in the Town of Ajax and City of Pickering in The Regional Municipality of Durham. Wastewater collection and treatment is essential to the economy, our health and for the protection of the environment. This tour will give participants the opportunity to walk through the plant, observing each stage of the sewage treatment process

Tour of Water Treatment Facility:
This will be a mix of outdoor and indoor walking. Please dress accordingly.
Durham Region staff will guide tour groups through the wastewater treatment plant, explaining each stage of the process. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions to Region of Durham staff and see the process live.
