Since its inception, Avizo Consulting has conducted more than 300 wastewater treatment projects for its commercial, community-based and institutional clients.
Authorization must be delivered by the Ministry of Sustainable Development, Environment and the Fight against Climate Change (MSDEFCC) for all wastewater treatment projects of more than 3,240 liters/day.
The following are examples of institutions that require an authorization from the Ministry. However, each case is subject to individual examination.
- Plants with more than 43 employees;
- Restaurants with more than 25 seats;
- Sugar shack with a dining room of more than 24 seats;
- Campground with more than 9 camps with services;
- Campground with more than 17 sites without sewers.
Avizo Consulting provides support to its clientele through the authorization process and the implementation of its projects in accordance with the Guide pour l’étude des technologies conventionnelles de traitement des eaux usées d’origine domestique.
