Open air canals in Santo Domino in the Dominican Republic were being used as dumping grounds and sewers by 250,000 residents of the urban area. The canals became blocked, and during heavy rainfall, the waters were badly polluted.

To alleviate the wretched conditions, Montreal consulting engineers Dessau are building a new canal, a network of underground sewers 56 kilometres long, and a new wastewater treatment plant for 150,000 people.

Another part of Dessau’s work is building 1,700 new apartments to relocate the families whose dwellings are being demolished in the clean-up works.

The $300.5-million project will be completed in 2010. Dessau is providing engineering and construction management, and it organized the financial structuring. Ren Bourdages, ing. is project manager for Dessau.
