For residents not on septic systems, the Township is responsible for taking sewage waste from the property, treating it, and discharging it safely into the environment.

There are two municipal sewage systems in South Stormont; one in Long Sault and one in Ingleside. While the operation of the sewage treatment facilities is contracted to Caneau Water and Sewer Operations Inc., the Township assumes the responsibility of the collection systems. 

Ingleside

Ingleside Sewage Treatment Plant

The Ingleside Sewage Treatment Plant is located on the Long Sault Parkway, east of the village of Ingleside. 

Preliminary treatment involves an automatically controlled mechanical bar screen with manual bar screen on the bypass channel. Screenings are transferred to a removal bin for removal from the site. Secondary treatment involves transfer to an inlet distribution box which feed the aeration tanks. Effluent from the secondary clarifiers is chlorinated at the influent basin and discharged through a parshall flume chamber, then the discharge pipe to Lake St. Lawrence.

Waste activated sludge is aerobically digested in primary and secondary digesters and then stored in an open storage top tank for land application as biosolids.

Long Sault Sanitary Sewage Collection System Master Plan

With the continued residential growth of the village of Long Sault, additional serviced lots have been added to the Long Sault sanitary sewage collections system. With this in mind, the Township has developed a Sanitary Sewage Collection System Master Plan to proactively identify the needs and potential concerns for the collections system. 

Phase 1 of the Plan includes the evaluation of the existing system, identifying bottle needs and other areas of concern.

Phase 2 of the Plan includes identifying areas of development in the system and provide an overall Plan. 

Phase 3 includes the development of a strategy to correct deficiencies noted in Phases 1 and 2.
