The Manitoba Water Services Board and the RM of St. Clements have engaged the consulting firm WSP to assess the potential of constructing a sewer system for the community of Grand Marais.
In order to provide background information on current on-site wastewater management by seasonal and permanent residents and business owners in the community, a survey questionnaire has been prepared and those in the community will receive it by mail in the next week.
When the information is gathered, and the study is completed, there will be public consultation sessions held in Grand Marais, in early July.
It is important to note that no commitments have been made with regard to constructing a sewer system. This study is simply a response to interest shown by citizens of Grand Marais, to provide more information so that discussions can proceed further to determine public opinion.
