Ketek replaced 50 troughs at the Saskatoon water treatment plant
Ketek recently replaced of 50 troughs in the City of Saskatoon’s water treatment plant. The troughs are 30 feet long and made of stainless steel. They are part of the filtration process that ensures safe drinking water for the City’s residents. The job involved extensive scaffolding and hoarding to ensure no contamination from the work – which included extensive sandblasting and concrete work – escaped into the rest of the plant.

Ketek cut up and removed old, unused pipe from a below-grade piping gallery. This involved lead abatement work.
