Notice of a PIC for Omemee Wastewater Treatment System – Environmental Assessment

Kawartha Lakes - 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.

All members of the public are invited to attend the second Public Information Centre (PIC) for the project:
