Tri-Municipal Sewage Project and Lakeshore Collection System Billing

posted in: News | 0

The Municipality of Bluewater has recently sent out invoices to select households on the lakeshore, in the areas of St. Joseph south to Grand Bend and along the north side of Hwy 83 (Dashwood Road) and the north half of Dashwood.  These invoices relate to a Sewer Master Plan project that originally began in 2004 and was part of a Tri-Municipality Sewerage Plant Project. The municipality elected to withdraw from the process in December 2011 due to lack of funding at senior levels of government. In November 2018 council directed staff to bill out the costs of the project.  A timeline of events is in this document Lakeshore Collection and Sewage Plant Costs Fact Sheet CA complied by the municipality.

BSRA is trying to clarify what correspondence about the billing for this project might have been sent to the affected residents at the time public meetings took place in 2010 and 2011.
