Omemee Sewers Report To Be Received

Omemee Sewage on KAwartha Lakes Agenda November 4, 2014
Background

Construction of the Omemee wastewater treatment facility (known as a Large Sub Surface Disposal System Omemee or LSSDS) was completed in the fall of 2013 by Behan Construction Ltd (Behan).
Omemee Sewer Spring 2014 Problems
Subsequent to completion in the spring of 2014, an operational deficiency was encountered where the effluent is not leaching into the ground as originally anticipated by the design engineers. The treated effluent was witnessed exiting from the bank slope. Through inspection several broken pipes were discovered due to settlement. It was believed that point loading of the effluent was causing overloading of the soil and forcing the liquid out of the ground. However, after piping repairs were complete and the system was placed back into service, the treated effluent continued to exit from the slope.
This is a very serious mater and the Ministry of the Environment required the City remedy the problem before OCtober 30, 2014. The City states the the timeline set by the MOE did not allow them to tender solutions, and therefore needed to pay Behan to remedy it to the tune of an additional $159,772.20.

Omemee Sewers Editor's Comment

I'm puzzled. 
If I hire an insured plumber to work on my toilet in my home and then after they complete the work, the toilet overflows, rather than flushing, does the plumber's insurance not have to pay for them to complete the job satisfactorily or cover the cost of having someone else fix the problem? IF this were a house people would be calling in Mike Holmes. 
When a company is paid to do a job and their work is not completed according to the goals of the contract, why would we need to pay more money to that same firm to finish the job properly?  
Is there something I'm missing here? It seems like a sure way to be paid more for your job -finish the job half-assed, in such a way that results in emergency funds being released, and then get more money to complete the job properly.
