Bobcaygeon Water Tank Project

Project PurposeBobcaygeon water tower

Ontario Clean Water Agency, OCWA, acting as the operation and maintenance contractor of selected water and waste water facilities owned by the City of Kawartha Lakes, retained Landmark Municipal Services to undertake an inspection of the Bobcaygeon Water Tower in 2018. The inspection identified the interior coating system to be in poor condition with corrosion throughout the interior of the tank. The inspection report recommended that the rehabilitation works and safety issues be completed and corrected in the next couple of years to avoid further deterioration of the tank.

Project Management

Dayson Industrial Services Inc. is the General Contractor. Dayson is an experienced water tower rehabilitation contractor specialized in coating applications. Their main subcontractor will be Landmark Municipal Services who specialize in water tower rehabilitations. OCWA’s Project Planning and Delivery Group will be the overall Construction Management Team.

Project Scope

This project involves the recoating and rehabilitation of the interior of the Bobcaygeon Tower Tank and minor recoating and repairs to the exterior, including but not limited to:

  • Remove existing interior coating of tank and apply a new coating system on the interior surface
  • Recoat roof handrail and hatches on the Tank
  • Install new fall arrest system on various ladders and other safety upgrades to meet current standards
  • Open the exterior cladding at selected locations in order to inspect the exterior coating system

Project cost: $957,000

What residents can expect

  • Water quality - The water will continue to be safe to drink. If pressure fluctuations are experienced, it is possible there may be discoloured water for a period of time. Please try running the cold tap for five minutes to clear it. If discolouration persists, please report this to the municipality by calling 705-324-9411 during business hours, Monday to Friday, 8:30am to 4:30pm.
  • Water pressure - The water system pressure will be maintained by highlift pumps at the water treatment plant. The highlift pumps are equipped with variable frequency drives that would operate the pumps faster or slower to maintain water pressure in the distribution system. Residents may experience periods of water pressure fluctuations.
  • Safety maintained - The Fire department have been advised of this project. Fire response will be maintained.

 

Bobcaygeon Library Branch

A public meeting was held on November 28, 2018 at the Bobcaygeon Public School. The purpose was to inform the public on the changes that are coming and to engage in a discussion of the features that the public would like to see in an improved branch.

The Library Board reviewed options to renovate the current space of the branch at the Boyd building (21 Canal St E.), or relocate to the Bobcaygeon Municipal Service Centre (123 East St S.), where the branch would occupy the top floor. 

The new library branch is targeted to open in the fall of 2022.

Civica Infrastructure - wastewater study

Notice of Fog and Dye (Inflow and Infiltration) Study

Public Notice, May 9, 2022

Civica Infrastructure is working on an Inflow and Infiltration (I/I) Reduction study in the Lindsay area.

The study’s objectives are to identify sources of rainwater entering the sanitary sewers and develop a plan to reduce these flows. Civica has been hired by a developer and is conducting the study with support from the City of Kawartha Lakes.

The study aims to provide mutual benefit to all by improving the performance of the sanitary sewer system.
The sanitary sewer system is an underground pipe network that collects wastewater produced by houses, businesses, and industries.

The purpose of the pipe network is to direct the wastewater to a treatment plant where the water is treated before being returned to the environment. Wastewater is the water that has been used by the community and disposed of including any water from toilets, sinks, showers, and other appliances. I/I occurs when water enters the sanitary sewers through cracks in the pipe network or through other undesired connections such as catch basins or roof downspouts. The rainwater and groundwater fill the pipes and reduce the capacity of the sanitary pipe network and the treatment plant. This also increases the risk of overloading the pipe network and potential basement flooding.

In order to identify sources of I/I, Civica Infrastructure, with support from the City, will be conducting a sewer fog and dye testing program in Lindsay throughout the period of April to December 2022, between the hours of 9am to 3:30pm. Fog and dye testing is a safe and easy way to locate any sources of I/I in the system.

Testing Dates

April through December 2022

Notice of Sanitary Sewer Flushing in Lindsay

Public Notice, June 14, 2022

Civica Infrastructure will be conducting sanitary sewer flushing in various areas of Lindsay beginning in June 2022 and continuing until November 2022. See map below for service areas.

Hours of work will be 7am to 5pm from Monday to Friday. Residents will receive a notice within one to three business days of Civica conducting the flushing in your area.

This preventative maintenance process is necessary to remove settled and accumulated material and will facilitate visual inspections and condition assessments of the sewers.

During this process, Civica will be setting up apparatus at manholes in the roadway and releasing pressurized water through the sanitary sewer main pipe to remove any buildup. As a result, a bubbling and/or vacuum effect may be noticed in your drains and toilets. It is recommended that residents close all toilet seats and cover any floor drains. In addition, in order to prevent sewer gases from migrating into the home, it is important to refill all plumbing traps by running the water in your sinks and floor drains after the work is complete.

Should you have any questions, please call Civica at: 289-879-8577 or 905-417-9792 ext. 2303

Old Mill-Pumpkin Hollow Heritage Conservation District Plan

Council initiated the development of a heritage conservation district under Part V of the Ontario Heritage Act in the Old Mill-Pumpkin Hollow neighbourhood of Lindsay in June 2020. Following the completion of a heritage conservation district study for the area, a heritage conservation district plan is currently in development for the area. The plan will provide guidelines and policy for future development in the area to ensure that the important heritage attributes of the area are preserved while still allowing for compatible growth and change. The plan will include the development of new policies for the area and public engagement to allow residents provide input into how they would like to see the neighbourhood grow.

 

Information on the plan's progress and ways to get involved can be found on the Old Mill HCD Development page. The final heritage conservation district study for the area is also available for review.

 

The first public meeting for the plan development phase will be held at the Victoria Park Armoury (210 Kent Street West) in the North End Room on September 15, 2022 at 7:30 pm and will include a presentation from staff, a Q&A and brainstorming session. A virtual meeting will also be held for those who are unable to attend on September 20, 2022 at 7:30 pm on Zoom. Advanced registration is required to attend the virtual meeting. Both meetings will cover the same content.

 Lindsay Water Pollution Control Plant upgrade and expansion
Lindsay Water Plant Upgrade detailsThis project intends to upgrade and expand the existing Lindsay Water Pollution Control Plant (WPCP) by providing additional wastewater treatment capacity for its largest urban centre. The project also aims at improving the current treatment process to ensure the plant can be in compliant with the regulatory requirements by the Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks (MECP).

The major work components include:

  • Construction of cast-in-place concrete aeration tanks with in-tank air diffusion systems to replace the existing aerated lagoon;
  • Construction of a new aeration process blower building with high capacity aeration blowers;
  • Upgrades to the headworks process and provision of flow monitoring to improve the influent flow control;
  • Upgrades to the existing secondary clarification process for enhanced controlLindsay Water Plant Upgrade drawing of sludge removal from the existing clarifiers;
  • Miscellaneous site works including construction of large underground pipes.

The City has awarded the construction of the project to Bennett Mechanical Installations (2001) Ltd. CIMA Canada Inc. has been retained to provide the construction management services on behalf of the City.

The project will officially commence in November 2020 and is expected to be completed by the end of 2022. The existing wastewater treatment plant will remain in operation during construction and commissioning of the planned upgrades. All temporary shutdowns of major and minor process subsystems will take place in a sequence with minimum disruption to the operation of the plant. Given the location of the project site, no impact to the public is anticipated by the construction activities.

Omemee

Omemee Wastewater Treatment Upgrade

The City of Kawartha Lakes is undertaking a planning process for the Wastewater Treatment System for the community of Omemee. The system was upgraded in 2013. The intent was to increase capacity by replacing the spray irrigation system by a Large Subsurface Disposal System (LSSD). Kawartha Lakes has identified that the LSSD system is not operating at its expected capacity and measures may be required to ensure adequate capacity exists for future demands and growth in the community. The recommended option includes continued operation of the LSSD in conjunction with the previous spray irrigation system.

The project is being carried out with the requirements for an addendum to the Schedule 'C' project under the terms of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) process, which is approved under the Environmental Assessment Act. As part of the Class EA process for reviewing the upgrade of the sewage treatment system, public comment will be requested.

A public database of comments will be maintained and, except for personal information, included in the study documentation that will be made available for public review. Parties interested in providing input or that wish to obtain additional information at this stage of the study are asked to submit comments in writing to:

Comprehensive Zoning By-Law Review

New Zoning By-law Project will consolidate the regulations of the City’s 19 Zoning By-laws.

Kawartha Lakes has been using the original 19 Zoning By-laws since amalgamation in 2001 to address land development within the municipality as a whole. While the original By-laws have still continued to meet development needs, the outdated standards and regulations between areas has promoted the decision to create one new comprehensive Zoning By-law for the municipality. This project will take place in two phases: the first will address the 14 Rural Zoning By-laws and the second phase will review the five Urban Zoning By-laws.

The Task Force is scheduled to meet over the course of preparing the draft Rural Zoning By-Law for Council consideration. All meetings will be open to Council, staff and the public. Funding in the amount of $100,000 has been allocated for the Rural Zoning By-law in the City’s 2019 Budget. It is anticipated that this will be a two year project.

Downtown Parking Strategy

The City has retained IBI Group to prepare the Downtown Parking Strategy, which is a study to examine issues, substantiate specific needs and develop proposed solutions regarding parking in the downtown areas of Lindsay, Fenelon Falls and Bobcaygeon.

There are two online surveys now open for public consultation on the Downtown Parking Strategy. For more information on the project and to take the surveys, please visit the Downtown Parking Strategy Project page.

Heritage Inventory

The City is currently undertaking a comprehensive inventory of all of the historic resources across our many communities. The goal of the inventory is to document and understand what historic places and spaces exist in Kawartha Lakes that make our communities unique. The inventory will be taking place beginning in summer 2022 on a community by community basis.

Find out more and have your say on the the Heritage Inventory project page and on Jump In.

Core Service Review

In 2015, Council voted to embark upon a Core Service Review process. The purpose of this extensive review of all City services, departments and assets is to determine how best to deliver the services that matter the most to our residents.
