Maintenance work scheduled for Vernon Water Reclamation Centre next week


The City of Vernon would like to advise residents near the Vernon Water Reclamation Centre (VWRC) that increased odours may be noticeable in the area next week as crews begin scheduled maintenance on the facility.

Starting as early as Monday (May 29), crews will begin maintenance work on components of the facility. As a result, residents and passersby may potentially notice an odour increase. The scheduled work is expected to be completed by June 2, and is not expected to affect the daily operations at the VWRC.

All efforts will be made to reduce odours leaving the site, however, some odour transfer may be unavoidable. The City appreciates everyone’s understanding while this work is being completed.
