Clarifying information about Lunenburg’s Harbour and wastewater treatment improvements
Lunenburg’s Town Council and staff acknowledge and welcome the interest expressed recently in Lunenburg Harbour and the Town’s wastewater treatment. In response to community concerns, we would like to provide an update on our ongoing efforts to improve the waste water treatment process and harbour health.
We are hosting a public information session on Thursday, November 9, 7:00 p.m. at the Lunenburg and District Fire Hall, 25 Medway Street to discuss wastewater treatment and Lunenburg Harbour water quality initiatives. We welcome anyone interested to participate and learn more from Town Engineering staff, Biofilter design Engineer, Bluenose Coastal Action Foundation, Nova Scotia Environment and others.
Like so many of our residents and visitors, we are proud of our World Heritage UNESCO designation and want to do everything we can to foster this pride. This includes ensuring our community has access to modern, reliable wastewater services. Ongoing investments in our wastewater treatment system have been made since the construction of the Town’s wastewater treatment plant in 2003 with the assistance of our Federal and Provincial funding partners. A joint investment of $3.5 M this year has allowed us to separate and replace more storm and sanitary sewer mains in three major streets to reduce combined sewer overflows during rainfalls and lessen treatment plant volumes. The work is near completion and we are grateful to everyone who has patiently lived, worked and travelled around construction detours in recent months.
An additional $1.1 M in Federal, Provincial and Municipal Infrastructure funding was announced this fall to construct a wastewater treatment plant odour control system “Biofilter” for completion in 2018. We are thankful for the support of our Federal and Provincial partners to accomplish these projects. We know this has been an issue of community concern and we are pleased to now have the means to address it.
