Grey Water

With over 25,000 square feet of flat roof covering our meeting rooms, the building was designed with utilizing that area to maximum benefit. A series of drainage pipes collect run-off rainwater and melted snow, diverting them to a massive 450,000 gallon Grey Water tank housed beneath our complex. The water is filtered with chlorine, and then recycled throughout all of the toilets in the washrooms. In the summer, the Grey Water is also recycled for our on property irrigation system.

Ecolab - We have aligned ourselves with this company. Ecolab provides confidence that all aspects of our operations are protected. As a trusted partner, we are always there — helping our customers have a clean and safe operation, satisfied guests and better business results — all provided in the most sustainable way.
