It seems like it has been a long time coming – for residents and business owners and Council. The waiting is over and the building of the new wastewater plant begins on Monday, July 24.
The tender was awarded to Selectra Construction Ltd, who will be using Hadovic Construction as its sub-contractor. The build is expected to take 120 days, which will bring us into mid-November. You will begin to see their vehicles on County Road 10 next week as they build a new driveway/road into the site to facilitate the heavy traffic of trucks delivering sand for the new system. Once the road is finished, the truck traffic into the site may be quite heavy at times as the amount of sand required for the system is significant.
AECOM Engineering has provided experienced oversight and on-site supervision of the build. Gaetan Beauchesne P.Eng has 25 years experience in water and waste water engineering and he will be overall in charge. Sara Mashaie P.Eng will be the on-site supervisor and has 8 years experience in water and waste water.
Paul Snider, CAO and Clerk is in charge for the Village and he is strongly supported by our engineer Max Christie, Manager of Infrastructure.
I have met with all of these individuals and shared with them our values and that the future growth of the Village rests with getting this right.
Council is supportive of this group of men and women and think they are a well qualified team to build the new wastewater system that allows the Village to grow.
And so, it begins!!!!
Call if you have any questions or concerns. 9195.
On Friday, December 11 @ 2:00 p.m., at a Special Committee of the Whole, Consultants from AECOM will be providing Council with a briefing on the Class C Environment Assessment in regard to the Waste Water Treatment Plant. This briefing will include its recommendation on the alternate solution.
The meeting is open to the public, of course, and you are welcome to attend at the Council Chambers if you want to hear the “full story” of the work that AECOM and the Technical Support Committee have been doing this year and its recommended alternate solution for the Waste Water Treatment Plant.
I hope that you will join us.
