Lagoon Dates of Accepting Septic Truck Hauling

The RM of Brokenhead has operation guidelines as per The Environment Act Manitoba License issued for lagoon operation.  Septic truck haulers and home owners in the RM of Brokenhead should make note of the following:

Septage is not allowed to be discharged into the RM of Brokenhead lagoon between the 15th day of October of any year and the 1st day of June of the following year.  Septage is the sludge produced in individual on-site wastewater disposal systems, most commonly septic tanks.  The only exception is in case of an emergency where a septic tank has over filled and solids have flowed over into the liquid side of the tank which could cause problems with pump or fields.

Holding tanks are allowed to be hauled by septic truck haulers to the RM of Brokenhead lagoon throughout the whole year as these tanks consist of mostly wastewater rather than solids.
