The Town of Saugeen Shores is repurposing the former Port Elgin Water Pollution Control Plant to be used as a live fire training facility for the month of March 2017.
The building is located on Lehnen St., near the Dog Park, on the east end of Port Elgin. Live fire training will occur during the month of March only. The building will be demolished in April 2017.
“The Fire Department is thankful for the opportunity presented by Public Works staff. Their collaborative approach brings an excellent training opportunity to further enhance Firefighter capabilities.” said Phil Eagleson, Fire Chief, in a news release.
Town of Saugeen Shores’ staff will be issuing a Public Notice to identify when training will be scheduled.
The building is approximately 25’ by
25’ and has served as a surplus storage building for a number of
years. The building is now in extreme disrepair. In addition the
building is located in direct conflict for a proposed access road
and chain link gate which will be constructed as part of the Port
Elgin Water Pollution Control Plan Effluent Outfall Replacement
Project (construction scheduled for summer 2017).
