The Manager of Environmental Services (MES) was asked if there was an update regarding the private fire hydrants and valves; there are no updates due to COVID-19 restrictions. Decisions will need to be made regarding providing services for private fire hydrants and valves before the water/wastewater bylaw can be updated and finalized.
The MES was asked if there was an update to the SCADA project to allow staff to remotely connect. No updates have been available due to COVID-19, as the water/wastewater plant is only allowing access for emergency situations that may develop.
A question asked if the digester heat exchanger would be in the 2021 budget, or if it is expected to be an add on to the budget. The MES replied that it would be an add on. TSSA will need to approve the temporary repairs to the existing unit before it is operable. The MES expects it will take at least six months to design and process a new heat exchanger.
