Federal government, Nova Scotia and municipal partners increase capacity to manage sewage in Colchester County

Debert, Nova Scotia, March 22, 2024 — Two communities in Colchester County will see their capacity to manage sewage increase after a combined investment of $5,885,000 from the federal and provincial governments along with the Municipality of the County of Colchester and the Village of Bible Hill.

This was announced by Minister Sean Fraser, Member of the Legislative Assembly Tom Taggart, Commissioner Kevin Kennedy, and Mayor Christine Blair.

The Debert Sewage Treatment Plant will double its capacity by adding two concrete tanks and a building. As a result of this expansion, the plant’s capacity will be increased to accommodate 600 new homes as well as planned future commercial and industrial development.

The other project involves replacing approximately 21 metres of deteriorated sanitary sewer pipe and a manhole in Bible Hill, as well as renewing components at two lift stations. This project will allow the village to increase their capacity to manage the flow of wastewater within the sanitary network.
