Update on the new Waste Water Treatment system – Jan 5, 2018

The contractor continues to finish construction on the new waste water system.  However, the lagoons are close to capacity and until the plant is fully operational, it will be necessary to haul effluent again this year to Smiths Falls.  The Village has tendered the haulage and you will begin to see trucks later next week.

The haulage will ensure that lagoon levels stay ahead of the daily flows, which is different than past years where the intention of haulage was to empty the lagoons.  I know we all hope that the system is fully operational in the next few weeks.

So, when you see the tankers on County Rd 10 or 42 next week, it is important for you to know that our contract states that the cost of haulage is the contractor’s, not ours.

Please call if you have any questions.  9195
