Sewage Treatment Plant Road & Bucksaw Ridge Trail access closures May 29, 2023 – January 31, 2026, for upgrades to the Grande Cache Wastewater Treatment Facility
Please be advised that construction will begin on May 29, 2023 – January 31, 2026, for upgrades to the Grande Cache Wastewater Treatment Facility. The Grande Cache Wastewater Treatment facility is a critical piece of infrastructure in the community and plays a significant part in protecting public health and the environment. Over the last 39 years, there have been little to no upgrades to the facility, and this asset has nearly come to the end of its functional design life.
As this will be an active construction site, section(s) of the Sewage Treatment Plant Road and Bucksaw Ridge Trailhead access will be closed during construction from May 29, 2023 – January 31, 2026. These closures are necessary to ensure the safety of the public and the workers. During the construction, other trailhead accesses along the Sewage Treatment Plant Road may become affected.
We ask for your cooperation in staying away from the closed areas. Signs and barricades will be placed to indicate closures. We understand that this may cause inconvenience for those that use the Bucksaw Ridge Trail regularly, but please plan your hiking or biking trips accordingly, as you will not be able to enter or exit that trailhead access. Please see the below map.
Please watch for further updates, and we thank you for your cooperation. For more information, please contact Environmental Services at 1-825-347-2108.
