Relocation of the residential/commercial lines to the Scotia CSD public right-of-way, using 6-inch minimum diameter pipe; replacement of all service laterals using 4-inch minimum diameter pipe and the installation of service cleanouts; and installation of new manholes and cleanouts in residential and commercial areas;
As of the end of 2017, Scotia CSD holds responsibility for the wastewater collection system infrastructure in Phase 1, with Phase 2 projected for acceptance in early 2018.
Due to the age of the treatment plant and the need for modern upgrades to maintain compliance with applicable laws and regulations, the SCSD plans to replace the current treatment plant, estimated at 3 million dollars. This project is estimated to begin within the first 5 years of operations (2021).
