Please be advised that, due to the normal wastewater maintenance schedule that is done annually, the south aeration cell at the Amherstview Water Pollution Control Plant (sewage plant) is being emptied of sanitary sludge, cleaned, and inspected. The work is necessary to ensure that the sewage effluent (the treated liquid that flows out of the plant) continues to meet Ontario standards.

Due to this work, residents may notice a sewer odour for short periods of time throughout the day. We apologize for this. Please note that the odour is not a health hazard. We will provide an update when the scheduled cleaning and inspection have been finished.

The water and wastewater operators are proud to serve the community of Loyalist Township and appreciate your patience during this process.
