Due to the significant rainfall experienced Tuesday evening through Thursday morning, Town staff were busy responding to localized flooding on Town roads and surcharges from the Town’s wastewater system. Collingwood was one of almost 30 nearby wastewater facilities that ended up with partial and full wastewater treatment bypasses as part of their operational response to the rain event. As per the Town’s Operating Procedure, the Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks, Spills Action Centre and Medical Officer of Health were notified and samples of the discharges were collected.
