Separator Installed To Capture Trash, Sediment And Oil Runoff Into Lake Scugog

KAWARTHA LAKES-Kawartha Conservation announced the installation of a Baagwating Oil-Grit Separator (OGS), as a key part of the Lake Scugog Lake Enhancement Project (LSEP).

Officials say OGS are designed to capture trash, sediment, and oil from runoff during rain events and will lessen the amount of contaminated water entering Lake Scugog.

The construction of the OGS began in November 2023 and is planned to be completed in the winter months leading into 2024. This is the second of two OGS for the LSEP, the first being the Casimir OGS completed in March 2023. Both OGS installations are on track for completing phase I of the project.

Funding support for this project was made possible by Environment and Climate Change Canada’s Nature Smart Climate Solutions Fund. T
