The City of Ottawa is reviewing issues associated with connecting the Lynwood Mobile Home Park to the City’s central water supply system through the existing Carlsbad Springs Trickle Feed System, in response to a request from the owners/residents of the Mobile Home Park citing concerns regarding the quality of their groundwater supply. This study has been undertaken to establish the technical feasibility of making such a connection and reviewing some of the key issues associated with its possible implementation. The study also provides allot of information regarding the way the Carlsbad Springs Trickle Feed System operates and how it provides water to the area so we found it interesting to share with the residents that are serviced by this system. The Lynwood Mobile Home Park is located on Yorks Corners Road, south of the village of Edwards. Click here to view the document.

Sue Langlois from the community group (Dump this dump 2) fighting against the proposed Taggart-Miller waste project provided an overview of the evening: ”We are delighted by the participation of the local community at the recent Open House hosted by Taggart Miller (TMES) this past Monday. Finally after much pressure TMES agreed to come and meet and hear the local community. Over 300 people attended and packed the gym. Events kicked off with picketers carrying ‘No Dump’ signs, chanting ‘No Dump, No Dump’. Residents came out in droves to voice their concerns and it was very clear to everyone there that Carlsbad, Vars, Edwards and surrounding areas do not want this dump! There is no need for another landfill in the Ottawa area. People were outspoken and very passionate about preserving what they have today.” She also indicated that the DumpThisDump2 group signed up quite a number of new members, well beyond their expectations! More information can be found at their website at the following address: http://www.dumpthisdump2.ca/
(info below from Ottawa Sun.ca): The news arrived in the form of an announcement from TMES that it has chosen what’s known as the Boundary Rd. site as the preferred one for its proposed integrated waste management project including landfill.
