Wastewater & Harbour Water Quality Public Meeting
Published: November 30, 2018, 9:36 am
Thanks to all who attended the Public Information Session held on Wednesday, November 28 at the Lunenburg and District Fire Hall.
It was a very interesting evening, with updates from Bluenose Coastal Action Foundation on their summer Front Harbour water testing, CBCL Engineering on the Wastewater Treatment Plant and collection system review they are doing, the Lunenburg Harbour Health Advisory Group on their mandate and broad community membership, and the Dalhousie University Centre for Water Resource Studies. Coastal Action and CBCL in particular have been busy gathering data for months and their final reports, along with the newly-operational Biofilter odour control system, will be a great help to Town Council in determining the best way forward to further improve our treatment operations and harbour health.
Special thanks to the presenters (below) for sharing their expertise with the Town and our residents.

Last night’s Newcomers Reception welcomed over 30 new neighbours from across Nova Scotia, Canada, and the world! We’re delighted that people from all over can find their homes in our beautiful town.
Mayor Rachel Bailey, MP Bernadette Jordan, and MODL Deputy Mayor Cathy Moore addressed our new residents; Cheryl Lamerson of the Welcome Committee gave a short history talk; and Councillors Croft, Buchanan, and Risser helped “initiate” guests into local food culture with a tasting of Lunenburg pudding, sauerkraut and Solomon Gundy.
Thanks to all those who came out!
