Due to Canada’s challenging climate and dispersed populations outside of city areas, simple and reliable decentralized treatment systems are often preferred to treat municipal wastewater streams. As a differentiated membrane and system provider, KMS has been selected for this project due to their ability to provide a comprehensive solution with market leading technology.
