Published on April 30, 2018

Simcoe-Grey MPP Jim Wilson was in the Town of The Blue Mountains last week to present a $2.3 million cheque for the design and installation of a landfill leachate forcemain and pumping station. Jim was pleased to participate in the funding announcement and says the project will bring significant fiscal and environmental benefits to the community. Over the past two years, there have 25,000 litres of leachate (about 700 truckloads) taken from the landfill for treatment. When finished, this system will take those trucks off of local roads.
