  • The Wellington Advertiser - No easy fix; Station Street in Hillsburgh may be closed well into the new year
    this is Van Wyck said a lot depends on the acidity of the water which affects the galvanizing on the steel But once it is gone there s not much life left in that pipe He said with the water pressure We have a serious problem There have been discussions with the landowner who has been cooperative But a decision is going to have to be made by the town as to how much it is going to contribute The fact that we don t own the dam or the inlet structure is very clear But we do own the road He added To the best of my ability I have not been able to find any documentation regarding the pipe which goes from one side of the road to the other Councillor Barb Tocher said if the overflow structure was not leaking the dam would be functioning properly Mayor Lou Maieron asked if there was any way of tracking the history of the property and its structures He suspected the overflow structure in the pond being four metres deep indicates that at one point there was the ability to drain the pond Tocher agreed She believes the last time the pond was drained was in the 1960s At that time the silt would be cleaned out she said It s a man made pond Van Wyck said the municipality must find out what is wrong and the flow of water must first be stopped But with the water pressure through the pipe There s nothing you can do Tocher concluded Which means draining the pond Van Wyck said there are alternatives but there are costs involved Plus there are questions about the bottom of the pond He said with the degree of work required the town would have to hire equipment Maieron asked what would happen if all the boards are removed to allow the pond to drain Van Wyck was uncertain the municipality could get permission from the Ministry of Natural Resources to drain the pond during the winter Maieron asked how much the town wants to spend since the dam does not belong to Erin and is controlled through the MNR Tocher suggested it may now be time to put the property owner on notice and the owner will be held responsible for damages caused and that the structure needs to be fixed She again questioned why the state of the overflow intake structure and dam should be considered a municipal responsibility It is private property Van Wyck said the ministry will not allow the pond to be drained completely in the winter unless there is a threat to public safety or property Their initial response is that this is not To Van Wyck it means the town might be allowed to lower the water somewhat but not to drain it at this time of year He said the MNR is concerned draining the pond now would be detrimental to the wildlife buried in the shallow mud
