UPDATE to Notice (May 29) – The water leak on Richmond Street was repaired Tuesday May 26th. The Precautionary Drinking Water Advisory (“PDWA”) remains in effect until further notice. More work is scheduled to be done Tuesday June 2nd to replace another section of the aging water main on Richmond Street.

Upon completion of this work, the Town of Wolseley is required to send two consecutive sets of three (3) bacteriological samples collected one day apart. These water samples must test negative for bacteriological growth in the final treated potable water being supplied to the distribution system. This means, a minimum of six (6) total water samples have to be taken in a two-day period and sent to the Environmental Services at the Roy Romanow Provincial Laboratory. Public Works will deliver the samples to Regina to help speed up the process.

The advisory cannot be rescinded until the Town of Wolseley complies with Water Security Agency regulations on PDWAs. The Town will contact each and every affected user when the advisory is rescinded.

Thank you for your continued patience and cooperation.

Effective immediately and until further notice the conversion of the community hospital in Wolseley will take place. To enable this conversion, the emergency department in Wolseley will now be temporarily CLOSED effective Thursday May 14, 2020. By converting the purpose of Community hospitals in some of our communities we can protect our most vulnerable populations. Keeping patients and staff safe and healthy continues to be our number one priority. This is part of the Integrated Rural areas surge plan which will allow for the movement of alternate level of care patients out of tertiary and regional hospitals to create space for the potential COVID-19 surge.

In the event of an emergency, call 911. EMS will be dispatched to respond. EMS will assess the patient, initiate treatment, and transport to the most appropriate facility to provide further care for the patient’s illness/injury. Inpatient acute care admissions will temporarily stop and only patients considered alternate level of care will be admitted. Primary Health Care services will be maintained.

TOWN OF WOLSELEY
PUBLIC NOTICE
WOLSELEY LANDFILL CHANGES

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN THAT, effective June 1, 2018 all Construction Demolition materials will no longer be accepted at the Wolseley Landfill, until further notice. It is the responsibility of those (i.e. contractors and residents) to find alternative methods of proper disposal of these materials.

This decision is directly related to current waste disposal cell capacity and changing regulations at the Ministry of Environment (“MoE”). The MoE no longer permits, authorizes or approves the construction of any new waste disposal cells in the province unless they are engineered and constructed to best management practices. The Town of Wolseley will assess and investigate different options to come to a resolution for the Wolseley Landfill.

Dated this 18th day of May, 2018
Signed: Candice Quintyn, CAO


**  CONTRACTOR NOTICE **

As per Resolution No. [397/17] at the October 18th regular meeting of Council, we are advising Contractors that effective January 1, 2018, the
Town of Wolseley Landfill will no longer be accepting shingles.

This decision was based on the fact that shingles are taking up too much space. Council therefore wishes to extend the useful life of the Wolseley Landfill, by discontinuing the acceptance of shingles.

Alternative options are available are contacting neighbouring communities who may still accept shingles, or contacting a waste disposal company to supply and place a large disposal bin at the job site.

We thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
