Summer is finally here and once again and regrettably some days, some residents may experience odour coming from the Waste Treatment Plant. The recent hot weather and amount of rain we have had this spring has impacted the volume of effluent being treated which makes balancing the composition chemistry, particularly the odour causing beasties, tricky. Civic Works crew are doing everything they can to mitigate the issue.
Help is on the way though. To complete the plant upgrade, the Village is expecting nearly a quarter million dollars worth of equipment to upgrade the aeration system and second clarifier. It is scheduled to arrive and be installed late this summer. Due to production delays, we were unable to get it sooner. Until it is installed, we may still have some issues with odour which the crew will make every effort to minimize.
We thank all of you for bearing with us as we solve this issue.
