The mandate of the Operations Department is to maintain public infrastructure. The budget areas include Transportation and Environmental Health and the Water and Sewer utility.
The Rothesay Works Department is responsible for day to day operation of the street network and storm drainage system, including such activities as road repair (winter and summer), snow and ice removal, street cleaning, maintenance of catch basins, storm sewers and ditches and installation/replacement of culvert pipe as required. The Works Department also provides equipment, operator and labour support to the Water Utility as required.
The Rothesay Water and Sewer Utility Operates under specific approvals from the New Brunswick Department of Environment and Local Government. Approximately 30% of Town residents are connected to the Town water system which is supplied by a wellfield at Carpenter’s Pond, treated in a GE Water Zeeweed microfiltration plant at McGuire Road and pumped through two water storage reservoirs to the distribution piping network. The sewer approvals stipulate guidelines for the content of effluent released to the environment. Approximately 70% of Town residents are connected to the Town sewer system which conveys collected sewage to three lagoons, one at Maliseet Drive and two near Kennebecasis Park.
In addition to the Works function and the Water and Sewer Utility function, the Rothesay Operations Department is responsible for solid waste collection and disposal, maintaining traffic lights and decorative street lights and managing capital programs for improvements to all areas within the department.
