Silent Hero Award winners soldier on through multiple challenges to help a major Nova Scotia wastewater treatment project come in on time and under budget.

With a combined 85-plus years’ experience, the operations team was essential in shepherding the $64 million project that expanded and upgraded the Eastern Passage Wastewater Treatment Facility in Halifax, ensuring discharge of clean water into Halifax Harbour.
