newterra CEO outlines the changing perspective on water treatment infrastructure

Brockville, ON – (October 6, 2014) Bruce Lounsbury, CEO of newterra, a global leader in designing and manufacturing modular water treatment systems, recently summarized the compelling case for decentralized water treatment in the September/October issue of Water Canada magazine.

In the article, Lounsbury cites the advent of new technologies, particularly for wastewater treatment, that offer lower capital costs as well as a higher level of effluent quality that opens the door to reuse opportunities. It's a position endorsed by the USEPA and a growing number of developers and communities that are recognizing the public/private financing opportunities that traditional, large infrastructure projects simply can't provide. newterra's water solutions include scalable, membrane bioreactor (MBR) wastewater systems that preserve capital by allowing treatment infrastructure to grow in parallel with each phase of a development project.
