Marystown Area Sludge Treatment Facility

Proponent: Multi-Environmental Services Limited

Summary of Environmental Assessment Process

  • Project Description:
    The proponent proposes to construct a sludge treatment facility on Route 220 between Burin and Marystown, on the outskirts of the municipal boundary of Marystown. Tanker trucks would deliver bio-solids collected from septic tanks in the area to the proposed treatment facility. The facility would consist of three sludge holding beds, a Kickuth BioReactor Wetland Treatment bed, a parking and turning area, and a storage shed on a site approximately 150 metres by 150 metres. It is proposed that treated effluent will be discharged into the ground through a subsurface discharge. Access to the proposed site would be via an existing road which would be upgraded. The proponent expects that construction will take approximately three months following release from the environmental assessment process.
