Chatsworth/Georgian Bluffs Biodigester

The biodigester, owned and operated jointly by the Municipalities of Chatsworth and Georgian Bluffs is now up and running. I think it is very important that local residents have a good picture of the hows and whys of this project, so I went to se it for myself, and I have had very helpful conversations with Rick Winters, the Operations Manager for Georgian Bluffs.  This Biodigester is the first in Ontario to be owned by a Municipality and is designed to convert septage, holding tank waste, and various commercial organic waste products to energy and a residual consisting of high quality fertilizer. It will potentially create a "new normal" for the handling of such wastes in Ontario.
