City going door-to-door in Coniston to talk flooding, sewer backups

Also work on Agnes Street in Azilda will last until September

The City of Greater Sudbury is sending water/wastewater environmental compliance officers and staff door-to-door in Coniston beginning today until Aug. 1.

The goal is to help residents identify and prevent possible sources of ground water that may contribute to flooding or sewer backups, the city said in a news release.

Business cards and brochures will be left at homes where citizens are not available, and residents are encouraged to follow-up with the compliance officer (contact info will be provided) to book an appointment at a mutually convenient time.

You’ll be able to identify the compliance officers by the city vehicles they drive and the city-regulated badges and City of Greater Sudbury shirts they’ll be wearing.

For residents of Azilda, infrastructure improvements to the wastewater treatment plant at 564 Agnes Street will be ongoing until September 2017. 

The work will replace older equipment and provide future wastewater treatment for the community, the city said, adding residents and businesses will not experience service interruptions during the work.

That said, residents are asked to conserve water usage whenever possible during the improvements.
