Haliburton Sewage Treatment Plant

The Haliburton Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) is located in the Village of Haliburton.

In 1983, a study was prepared to extend the sewage collection system to several resorts located along the north shore of Lake Kashagawigamog.

In 1985, approval was applied for to construct the North Kashagawigamog sewer extension, but prior to granting approval the Ministry of the Environment (MOE) required a capacity study to be conducted on the existing STP. The capacity study concluded that the existing STP did not have sufficient capacity to accommodate the anticipated future flow from the town and the extended service areas, and therefore recommended an expansion to the existing STP.

The expansion of the Haliburton STP required a Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) to be conducted, which began in May 1988. The Class EA process was completed and a design for the expanded STP was finalized in 1994. Construction for the expansion began in 1994 and the new facilities were commissioned in 1995. Following the completion of the upgraded STP work began on the installation of the new collection system which included various sizes of gravity collection systems and seven pumping stations. An eighth pumping station was constructed and commissioned in late 2004.
