Management of Septic Sludge Systems

Established in 2005, the Integrated Management Septic Program of the MRC de La Vallée-de-la-Gatineau (MRCVG) is twelfth year of operation. This is an exemplary responsibility which was undertaken by the MRCVG’s council. Although the Règlement sur l’évacuation des eaux usées des résidences isolées (Q.2 r-22) has been in force as of August 12, 1981, it has only been since March 2011 that sludge is considered an organic material to be administered under the Québec Policy on residual materials management, known as the Politique québécoise de gestion des matières résiduelles (PGMR).

Fifteen out of sixteen municipalities signed an inter-municipal agreement stating the systematic pumping of septic tanks must be conducted according to the prescribed frequency of the sewage regulations for isolated residences ((Q.2 r-22). Collected samples are forwarded to the processing center, Centre de traitement des boues de fosses septiques de la MRC de La Vallée-de-la-Gatineau, operated by the Environmental Health and Environment department, of the MRC.

During the 2016 season, it took 119 days and 1,063 truck-loads to deliver the contents of 4,466 septic tanks and holding tanks, to the processing center for a total volume of 12, 004 m3 of sludge.
