On behalf of the Town of Lakeshore, the Ontario Clean Water Agency (OCWA) operates the wastewater treatment facilities.
There are presently five existing wastewater service areas in the Town of Lakeshore and include:
Belle River / MaidstoneSewage Works - The urban areas between Manning Road and Charron Line Road generally north of the CPR tracks are serviced by a sanitary sewage works system consisting of sanitary sewers, pumping stations and the Denis St. Pierre Water Pollution Control Plant (WPCP) which is located on Rourke Line. The system was originally developed by the Ontario Ministry of the Environment as a Provincial Sewage Works Project that was constructed and built between 1974 and 1981 under a total of ten construction contracts. The system has since expanded to meet the growing the needs of the community.
Stoney PointSewage Works - The Stoney Point urban area and adjacent lakefront areas are serviced by a wastewater collection and lagoon based treatment system. The first phase of the system was originally constructed in 1978 and included a gravity collection system, two pumping stations and two 14 acre oxidation ponds. The Stoney Point Sewage Treatment Facility (STF) is located on Tecumseh Road west of Little Creek. The collection system was extended in the late 1980's westerly along St. Clair Road towards Rochester Townline Road to service lakefront properties.
ComberSewage Works - The Comber urban area is serviced by a wastewater collection and lagoon based treatment system. The system was originally constructed in 1974 and includes a gravity collection system, pumping station and two 2.43 ha (6 acre) oxidation ponds. The Comber STF is located in the south-east corner of Comber and accessible from Windsor Avenue.
South Woodslee Sewage Works - The South Woodslee hamlet area is serviced by a wastewater collection and treatment system. The system was constructed in 2005 and consists of a low pressure sewage collection system and a mechanical sewage treatment plant located west of County Road 27 (Belle River Road) in the south-western corner of Woodslee Memorial Park adjacent to the Belle River and is accessible from King St.
North WoodsleeSewage Works - The western portion of the hamlet area of North Woodslee is serviced by a wastewater collection and treatment system. The treatment facility was constructed in 2008 and currently services the properties generally along County Rd. 46 west of the Belle River as well as properties along Oriole Park Drive. The system has been designed to allow servicing to be extended to the rest of the hamlet area on the east side of the Belle River. The North Woodslee Sewage Treatment Plant is operated by the Zelinski Group.
