$5,000 spent on Leonie dam

The next Public Works committee meeting will be at 4 p.m. on January 22, and will be followed by an Open House at 6 p.m.

The District of Barriere Public Works committee members got an update on the Eco-tek Water Reclamation project from Kim Rink at the November 27, Public Works meeting.  Rink stepped through a slide presentation detailing the design of the facility, explaining to the committee what has been changed from the original version and why.

Then Dave Underwood spoke, giving the committee an update on the Septage Receiving station, as well as an update overall.  The geo-tech report has been completed now.  Also, the location for the main lift station has been determined and the best location will be to have it next to the Septage station.  The concrete work will be started soon, perhaps as soon as next week.  The digging of the monitoring wells was started on November 26 and will be done shortly.

In other business, the resurfacing of the Statutory Right of Way after the construction of the Wastewater Project will need to be discussed – this will be done at future meetings.

Committee members are still looking into the possibility of a District Hot Water Heating proposal.

The District has received the final report on Leonie Lake Dam.  Approximately $5000 has been spent, to date, on repairs to the dam, and staff will be getting costs on the rest of the needed upgrades and repairs.

The next Public Works committee meeting will be at 4 p.m. on January 22, and will be followed by an Open House at 6 p.m.
