Public Information Project Summary

Courtright WWTP Odour Control Project and Final Effluent Reuse System

St Clair Township is in the process of upgrading the Odour Control System and installing a Final Effluent Reuse System at the Courtright WWTP. The Township has applied for funding through the FCM (Federation of Canadian Municipalities) grant to assist with the costs. Some of the benefits from these projects include:

  • Improvement to Public Health
  • Improvement to the Communities Quality of Life
  • Reduction of off-site odours
  • Positive impact on nearby land and residents
  • Increase in home value on neighbouring properties
  • Reduction in water consumption (estimated to be reduced by up to 80%)
  • Decrease in Facility Operating and Maintenance costs
  • Operational improvements from the newly installed systems

The Courtright WWTP Odour Control Project is projected to be completed by Spring 2019. Tours of the facility are expected to be planned for late Spring 2019.

SLWC Program for the Township of St. Clair

Sewage Service Line Warranty Protection is now being offered

The Township of St. Clair Council approves Service Line Warranties of Canada Inc. (SLWC) to offer the National Service Line Warranty Program to homeowners located in our municipality.

This program provides up to $5,000 in coverage per incident. Additionally, the program has no annual or lifetime limits, service fees or deductibles – just protection when you need it most. SLWC provides first-class customer service with a 24/7 repair line and the use of licensed and thoroughly researched local contractors – keeping dollars in the local economy.
