Update on construction at the Tavistock Wastewater Treatment Plant
To date, approximately 950 dry metric tonnes of biosolids have been removed from Cell 1 at the Tavistock Wastewater Treatment Plant. On October 14, 2020, Public Works will seek County Council approval to adapt its construction plan for removing the remaining biosolids at the bottom of Lagoon Cell 1 using an alternate method so that work can be completed by the end of 2020.
Once we have a decision from County Council, we will provide a more detailed update to the community. In the meantime, you can read the council report with full details at www.oxfordcounty.ca/council. It will be included as part of the council agenda posted to the Oxford County website by end of day on October 9.
We continue to work towards the end goal of a fully rehabilitated primary lagoon cell in the Tavistock wastewater system. We thank the community for its understanding while we complete these required upgrades.
