Manitoba Approves Puraflo Residential Wastewater Treatment System

Peat fiber biofilter wastewater treatment system well-suited for residential and light commercial sites

The Manitoba Conservation Environmental Services Commission has approved the Bord na Mona Puraflo Peat Fiber Biofilter wastewater treatment solution for installation throughout Manitoba, in accordance with the authority under Section 25 of the Onsite Wastewater Management Systems Regulation. The approval is effective immediately, according to Michael Sundberg, regional sales and marketing manager for Bord na Mona Environmental Products U.S., Inc.

“The Puraflo Peat Biofilter treatment system is a superior low-energy natural wastewater treatment solution for onsite wastewater treatment requirements,” Sundberg said. “And we are very pleased to now have the approval of the Manitoba Conservation Environmental Services Commission to install the system throughout the province of Manitoba.”

Delivered in a pre-assembled modular unit that reduces installation costs, the Puraflo solution is compatible with pad dispersal systems, making it a treatment solution in difficult soil, shallow water table and lot-size-restrictive applications.

The most common Puraflo system applications include individual residential sites, community cluster systems, light commercial, schools and subdivision developments. The system is particularly suited for intermittent flow applications such as cottages, churches, parks and resorts as it retains the beneficial bacteria in the media. In addition the modular design allows phasing of the construction and very cost effective solutions for cottages and lakeside developments where high levels of treatment are desirable. The Puraflo treatment system is also an excellent solution for repairs.
