SHELBURNE DRAWS UP PLAN TO DEAL WITH STINK AT WASTEWATER TREATMENT PLANT 5/16/2017 8:17:33 AM
It will get worse before it gets better.
That was Shelburne Mayor Ken Bennington talking about the odour at the Wastewater Treatment Plant.
He says as they work towards fixing the problem at the holding ponds, the smell will linger for a little bit longer.
CAO John Telfer says the first step is to clean the sludge.
The removal will cost the town $150,000.
Once that is complete the town will look at raising the level of the berms that surround the holding ponds and plant trees.
That will hopefully stop much of the wind that blows over the ponds.
It will cost about $1.4-million with funds coming from the Water and Sewer reserve.
Ontario Clean Water Agency, who operates the facility, says the smell is not a health risk.
