Local 793 members work as a team to construct 445m of tunnels and 153m of shafts near Leslie Street that will carry treated wastewater from the Ashbridges Bay Wastewater Treatment Plant back into Lake Ontario.

This job involves excavating and lining two shafts, 24m and 30m in diameter, at depths from 26m to 65m below the ground surface for the pumping station.

The project, awarded to STRABAG, will help manage downpours, increase capacity and improve the water quality of Toronto’s waterways.

Below are Local 793 members (left to right) Marc Noel, Scott Vedder, Shawn McLeary Sr., Matthew Lorefice, Dan Kelly, Tamas Szabo, Nick Crozier.
