Wastewater survey on tap

Residents invited to have a say on wastewater treatment decisions before July 13

  • Jun. 30, 2015 5:00 p.m.

The next step in wastewater treatment decisions includes yet another survey for the public.

This one will be based on the ‘option sets’ developed for sites currently deemed possibly acceptable. The ‘option sets’ are based on a functional approach to the treatment of liquids and residual solids taking into consideration site size, treatment of liquids and residuals, treatment level, resource recovery opportunities, cost components and engineering standards. Based on public feedback, both centralized and distributed models have been developed.

Public input would help to identify preferred options chosen for more detailed technical and financial analyses.

The latest survey follows a June 10 public event where about 80 people heard some of the architectural and urban design possibilities for wastewater treatment plants. At the end of May, residents learned about the technically feasible sites and weighed in on topics such as livability, use of existing infrastructure or environmental concerns. The sites were then ranked as green for a high level of support with mild dissent, yellow for a mixed level of support with greater dissent, or red for a high level of concern with little to no support.
