Calgary #1 Eco-City in 2010

 

According to Mercer, Calgary, Canada ranked as the #1 Eco City in the world for its optimizing renewable energy sources and generating lowest pollution level possible. A couple steps it took to accomplish this:

  • The City of Calgary opened the new $430-million Pine Creek Wastewater Treatment Centre on Tuesday to meet its growing population for the next decade.
  • Pine Creek, the city’s third such treatment centre, can treat up to 100 million litres of wastewater daily, or enough to fill the Calgary Tower four times.
