Clearford announces license agreement with West Capital Developments to implement SBS® Sewer Network for Carp Airport Development
Ottawa, Ontario – (October 7, 2013) – Clearford Industries Inc. (“Clearford” or the “Company”, TSXV: CLI) today announced that it has signed a $500,000 license agreement with West Capital Developments (WCD) to implement its SBS® Collection Network as part of its Carp Airport Development. As part of the license agreement Clearford received an initial fee of $50,000 with the remainder of the contract being recognized over each of the 3 planned phases. Infrastructure construction is expected to begin in the Spring of 2014.
“This project is another exciting step forward for Clearford as the development is our first in Ottawa and is just minutes from our offices. The proximity of the site will allow Clearford to showcase our SBS® system to both local and international customers visiting our offices”, commented Clearford President and CEO Kevin Loiselle.
The Carp Airport Development, which was approved in 2003, is for a gated community adjacent to a high-tech business airpark. Subsequent to an ownership change in early 2013, whereby a new ownership group bought control of WCD , the proposed residential $50 million project now includes plans for the construction of 354 residential units and a 188-acre business park in the west-end of Ottawa on the airport property. It is expected that estate lots ranging from half an acre to five acres will start in the low $200,000s, and urban lots of 50 feet by 150 feet will start in the low $100,000s. The residents of the new community will receive city water, but will pay into a private sewage treatment system based on the Clearford Small Bore Sewer®. The community will operate like a private condominium, with some of the maintenance fees directed to the airport.
“For privately owned and operated sewage treatment systems, The SBS® System provides a cost effective collection network, which lowers the capital cost and long term operating costs of sewage treatment” said Mr. Loiselle.
