Haldimand County has initiated a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) to determine the preferred wastewater treatment alternative to meet anticipated growth in Jarvis.
How Will This Affect Me?
Wastewater in Jarvis is currently conveyed to the Jarvis wastewater treatment lagoons which are owned and operated by the County. Based on current estimates of the average wastewater flows the lagoon system is currently operating near its capacity. To address this issue, this study has evaluated the community’s 20-year wastewater treatment infrastructure needs and has identified a preferred wastewater treatment solution.
The preliminary preferred alternative identifed by this study is to construct a new forcemain to pump surplus wastewater from Jarivs to the larger Townsend lagoons for treatment.
