Work to begin on Ravensview Wastewater Treatment Plant Septage Receiving Station

Utilities Kingston is in the process of awarding the $3.9 million Ravensview Wastewater Treatment Plant Septage Receiving Station to the low tenderer. The intention is that the contractor will begin mobilizing to site next week. While this work is not expected to impact sewer services in the area, residents may notice minor construction noise and traffic.

The work will consist of the following:

  • An access road and remote unloading bay for septage haulers.
  • A two-storey septage receiving building.
  • The access road and unloading bay will be located outside the plant perimeter fence. This will permit hauler access.
  • The septage receiving building will be located inside the fence. It will house a pretreatment unit for screening and grit removal of septage, as well as an odour treatment unit.

The new works are designed to comply with all applicable regulations and Utilities Kingston has received Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change, Environmental Compliance Approval, Air and Noise, and Sewage for the works.

The 2004 Class EA Update for the Ravensview Wastewater Treatment Plant included this work, and provisions for its future construction and plant loadings were made during the 2009 upgrade. We are proceeding with this work now because the existing station at the Cataraqui Bay Wastewater Treatment Plant has reached the end of its service life and is scheduled for decommissioning as part of the ongoing plant upgrade.
