MONTREAL, Sept. 24 /CNW Telbec/ - The 1,100 residents of Montebello will
soon be drinking water treated with the innovative technology of the Dagua
firm. In order to upgrade its drinking water treatment facilities, the
Municipality of Montebello will invest $2.2 million in the daily production of
2,000 cubic meters per day.
Dagua was awarded the mandate following the Request for Proposals issued
in May 2007 for the construction of a turnkey project, including the
implementation of a drinking water treatment technology and the construction
of the plant's infrastructures. In fact the Municipality was looking to
acquire an innovative membrane filtration solution for the treatment of its
drinking water that would be in accordance with the Government of Quebec's
The DaguaFlo - the technology used for this project - is particularly
advantageous for a community like Montebello. It provides chemical-free
maintenance and operation, and impressive treatment performances that allow
producing drinking water that is 10 times purest than required by actual
standards, without any impact on the municipality environment.
Following on the success its innovative technology is enjoying since 2006
in the Municipality of Radisson, Dagua has started the construction of the
Montebello treatment plant in September. The plant is scheduled to be fully
operational sometimes this winter. "Dagua is proud to be associated with the
Montebello project that will provide the municipality's population with
exceptionally pure drinking water while using a chemical-free technology that
is made in Quebec and supports sustainable development objectives," added
Pierre Bélanger, President of Dagua.
"In recent years, the quality of drinking water has become an important
public health issue. In our position of public administrators, we must ensure
that all residents have access to high-quality drinking water. We are proud of
this major investment in our quality of life and the protection of the
environment", said Jean-Paul Descoeurs, Mayor of Montebello."
