BMROSS Project Wins Award

 

The Township of Huron-Kinloss was recognized for exceptional performance and dedication to improving the Great Lakes at the 2011 State of the Lakes Ecosystem (SOLEC) Conference, held in Erie, Pennsylvania, October 26-28, 2011.

 

Mayor Mitch Towlan and Matt Pearson of B. M. Ross and Associates Limited (BMROSS) were present to receive a “Success Story” award for the Huron-Kinloss Community Septic Inspection (HK-CSI) Program from Marta Moszcsenska, Canadian Consul General and Kevin Johnson, U.S. Consul General.

 

The conference provides Canadian and US Great Lakes decision-makers and scientists with the opportunity to receive the most comprehensive, up-to-date information on the state of the Great Lakes.  Since 1996, SOLEC has honoured various organizations who have exemplified a strong commitment to improving the environment within the Great Lakes basin.

 

The HK-CSI, which is a mandatory program administered by BMROSS, completed the fifth year of operation at the end October. Since the program began in 2007, approximately 2,000 or 71% of properties have been inspected.  Every property in the Township of Huron- Kinloss with a septic system (including holding tanks, pit privies/outhouses) will be inspected on a rotating basis over a seven to eight year period. Each year different areas in the Township are targeted for inspection.

 

Mayor Twolan stated “It was an honour to accept this award on behalf of Council and to be recognized for taking the initiative to preserve the natural environment and improve water quality through the Community Septic Inspection (HK-CSI) program.”  Through education, the program encourages residents to act with the sustainability of the local ecosystem in mind, by performing regular septic system maintenance, conserving water, and minimizing the use of household chemicals.  The program represents a long term commitment on the behalf of the Township to engage and encourage residents to work towards sustainability with the environment.
