Notice of Wastewater System Upgrade

Project Notice for the Wauzhushk Onigum Water and Wastewater Systems Upgrade

To Residents/Businesses

As a part of the Wauzhushk Onigum First Nation Water and Wastewater Systems Upgrade project, new water and wastewater infrastructure is being constructed to service the Wauzhushk Onigum First Nation. The wastewater will be conveyed via a lake crossing from Wauzhusk Onigum First Nation to Lakeside Crescent, where it will enter the existing wastewater system. As a result of the additional flow, the existing lift station at the intersection of Lakeside Crescent and 4th Avenue South within the City of Kenora will require upgrades to the pump, panel, genset, and associated piping and accessories. The upgrades to the existing lift station are planned under Schedule A+ of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment and are pre-approved subject to public notification prior to implementation.

Works pertaining to the lift station are scheduled to be completed within the 2019 calendar year. The project requires that the contractor maintains operation of the wastewater system during the work to avoid service interruptions to connected residents/businesses. We have attempted to notify all potentially affected residents/businesses of the construction, but if you have tenants in the affected area please advise them of the planned construction.

If you have any questions, concerns, or wish to view the project documents, please contact Matt Fisher of JR Cousin Consultants Ltd. at 204-489-0474 during regular business hours or by email at
