Community Sewer Servicing Options

Mill Springs LWTP

Long List of Community Sewer Servicing Options

There are currently 25 sewage facilities in the area operated by various groups. As part of the project, options have been identified which explore opportunities to amalgamate, expand, join and upgrade the existing infrastructure to meet future needs.

The options also looked at geographic issues - should there be a single facility or multiple facilities for the whole area or each urban area, or are there opportunities to collaborate for efficiencies. How do we address septic systems in particular in areas where the receiving environment is also a drinking water source?

The following options have been identified to date will be evaluated to develop a shorter list in the next stage of work.

While we may be planning for the future we also understand that the communities will build out at different rates so while we plan for the full build out each of the options also is designed to consider expansion when necessary but not before.
