Invited Guest Luc Van Hul, Morley Foye and Stephen Pyke, Preston Silliker and Monty MacAusland
Luc Van Hul and Stephen Pyke did a presentation on the design for the west lagoon. There were 5 options that they went over and the benefits to each one, which was done up in books and were given to each council member.
Option 1: Expand the West lagoon with a stabilization pond & UV disinfection system.
Option 2: Expand the waste stabilization pond & construct wetlands. These 2 options are based on if the community can access enough land.
Option 3: Engineered Wetlands
Option 4: Sequencing Batch Reactor
Option 5: Aerated Lagoon + waste Stabilization Pond + UV Disinfection this would be consolidated with the East Lagoon.
Luc and Stephen recommendation is to go with Option 1 or 2 as a 2nd cell is recommended. Council will need to first determine if they can secure the land and at what price the land would cost, and there would need to be testing done on the land to see if it would be suitable for the lagoon before proceeding.
If land can not be obtained there is still upgrades that can be done to the West lagoon to meet the requirements.
Albert thanked everyone for coming out and he will bring this to the next meeting to see what council thinks about the options.
