The new water treatment plant is complete, the pipes are laid and the last remnants of construction at the site are gone. As LOT spokesperson Katy Kerklaan put it in the final project newsletter, "To say this has been long-awaited is an understatement."

At the barbeque, residents enjoyed food provided by LOT while also checking out the new pathway between Kenthorpe Way and Mapleton Drive and taking tours of the water treatment plant.
