Hot Topic for the Council of The Blue Mountains - Leachate

Posted On: Thursday, August 9, 2018

The Municipality of Kincardine has been recognized at the Association of Municipalities Ontario for the leachate plant that was built. The $1.7-million facility was opened in the fall of 2016 and draws leachate from the landfill site and converts contaminants into solids which are removed. The liquid is sent to a stormwater pond, filtered and eventually works its way into the North Penetangore River and then to the lake. The plant can treat up to 55,000 L per day. Kincardine was given the Gas Tax Award at AMO which recognizes a municipality’s use of federal gas tax fund for infrastructure to make a difference in the community.
