2100 Major Municipal Water Treatment Projects in the U.S. and Canada


Municipalities in Canada and the U.S. will construct new drinking water treatment plants to supply a growing population. They will also replace and upgrade existing facilities. These projects are tracked biweekly in the McIlvaine North American Public Water Plants and People.

Canada and the U.S. will add 1,471 MGD of new facilities and will replace or upgrade 5,500 MGD. This will be accomplished through 1,750 major projects and many thousands of minor projects at the 22,000 treatment plants in the two countries.

In addition to the capital projects, McIlvaine forecasts that 30,000 bid requests for treatment chemicals will be issued for treatment plants in the two countries. Over 20 different chemicals are being used by treatment plans in the two countries. McIlvaine tracks chemical bid requests and bid reviews for chemicals as well as tracking capital projects.
