EGANVILLE DRINKING WATER SYSTEM:

Municipal Drinking Water Licence & Works Permit:

The Township of Bonnechere Valley has a Municipal Drinking Water Licence and Drinking Water Works Permit for the Eganville Drinking Water System.

Raw Water Supply: The source water for the Eganville Drinking Water System is the Bonnechere River, which originates in Algonquin Park and flows to the Ottawa River.

Treatment Process: The raw water from the Bonnechere River is processed using a conventional type treatment plant with chemical coagulation, flocculation, clarification and filtration. Disinfection is achieved by the introduction of sodium hypochlorite which maintains free chlorine residual in the treated water.

Distribution System: Treated water is pumped into the distribution system which consists of approximately 13 km of underground piping and a water standpipe for pressure equalization and supply when the pumps are cycled off.

Water Quality Monitoring: An extensive monitoring program is in place for both the treatment process and distribution system. All current Provincial requirements are being met for process monitoring and water quality.

Quality Management System: The Township of Bonnechere Valley maintains a Quality Management System (QMS) for the Eganville Drinking Water System in conformance with "Ontario's Drinking Water Quality Managment Standard" (DWQMS).

Compliance Reporting: An Eganville Drinking Water System Summary Report is prepared and submitted to the Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change (MOECC) on an annual basis.

EGANVILLE SEWAGE SYSTEM:

Municipal Sewage Works Certificate of Approval:  The Township of Bonnechere Valley has a Municipal Sewage Works Certificate of Approval for the Eganville Sewage Treatment Plant, Sewage Pumping Stations and Collection System.

Collection System: The gravity sewage collection system consists of approximately 11 km of underground piping and four sewage pumping stations.

Treatment Process: The collected sewage is processed in an extended aeration treatment system with the effluent being chlorinated and then de-chlorinated before it is discharged into the Bonnechere River. The aerated digested sludge is dewatered utilizing Geotube technology and the resultant biosolids are transported to landfill to be used as a soil amendment for final cover.

Sewage Quality Monitoring: An extensive monitoring program is in place for the sewage treatment process, effluent discharge and sludge dewatering. All current Provincial and Federal requirements are being met for process monitoring, sewage effluent discharge and biosolids quality.

Compliance Reporting: A Performance Report is prepared and submitted to the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change (MOECC) on an annual basis.
