NOTICE OF COMPLETION

Marmora Water Supply – Class Environmental Assessment

The standpipe serving the Village of Marmora is at the end of its useful life and requires substantial repairs or replacement. Some areas of the village have lower than desired water pressure owing to the height of the existing tower. In order to correct these issues, the Municipality has reviewed several options and concluded that a new, larger, standpipe will be erected at the present site and the existing standpipe removed. This project will ensure adequate water supply to the village of Marmora including projected population growth.

Bells of Peace Initiative November 11

100 Bells Will Toll on November 11th

Eastern Townships 003.jpg

The Marmora Legion Branch 237 has arranged for a Bells of Peace initiative. This will consist of the following:

  1. 100 Bell Chimes from St. Paul's Anglican Church;

  2. Siren from Marmora Fire Department will  activate for 100 seconds; and

  3. Recorded 100 Bell Chimes and Amazing Grace, on bagpipes,  at Marmora Memorial Park 

bells of peace.PNG

On November 11, at the going down of the sun, communities across Canada will mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War, with the ringing of 100 bells. The ringing of bells emulates the moment in 1918 when church bells across Europe tolled as four years of war had come to an end.

Legion Branches and communities will host commemorative ceremonies and special activities to help Canada Remember. At sunset on November 11, the bells will ring at Parliament Hill, city halls, places of worship, military bases, Naval vessels and at ceremonies across the country to honour Canada's Veterans and commemorate the end of the First World War.

On November 11, 1918  church bells rang out spontaneously across the country to celebrate the signing of the “Armistice.” After four brutal years  and so many young men and women dead or injured, the First World War was officially over.

One hundred years ago today, relief and joy swept our land. And as we commemorate Armistice 100 tonight, we mark the occasion through this Royal Canadian Legion Bells of Peace ceremony.

On November 11th our bells will toll 100 times. With each peal, we will remember the close to 66-thousand Canadians and Newfoundlanders at that time, who were killed in the First World War  the 172-thousand wounded and the countless others who suffered invisible yet painful wounds.

We also remember the total number of Canadians who served our country during that war – over 650 thousand people.   Marmora Legion Branch 237  honours them all. At the setting of the sun, we promise them and their descendants that we will never forget their sacrifices.

Listed below are the Marmora and area soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice in World War One:

Sump Pump Inspections

The Marmora and Lake Environmental Services is launching a free sump pump inspection program. The program provides urban Marmora & Lake (Marmora and Deloro villages) homeowners the opportunity to schedule an inspection with staff to verify that the residential sump pump is appropriately connected to a drainage system and not the sanitary sewage system.

 

The inspector will work with home owners to ensure proper sump pump installation and provide recommended solutions for suitable connections, if required.

 

In addition to the inspection, there will be an opportunity to review best practices in water and waste water with the inspector including:

  • a property walk around to ensure proper extension of downspouts away from the home’s foundation,

  • discussing best practices for water conservation, and checking for leaking fixtures in the home,

  • reviewing the clean-out location of the sanitary service within the home, and

  • exploring the location of incoming water services and related turn off valves.

 

To schedule an inspection, please call 613-472-6285 or email Victor Reid, v.reid@marmoraandlake.ca.  (please be sure to specify full name, address and preferred time)

Sump pump.png

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)

What is a Residential Sump Pump?

A sump pump is a small pump installed in the lowest part of a basement or crawlspace.  Usually, sump pumps are installed in specially constructed sump pits.  Ground water flows into the sump pit through drains or by natural water migration through the soil.  The sump pump’s job is to pump the water out of the pit and away from the building so that the basement or crawlspace stays dry and to prevent it from flooding.

 

What Happens During an Inspection?

An inspection for a typical home will usually be completed in less than one hour. The inspector will walk around the exterior of the house looking at the discharge points for downspouts and area drains, such as yard, patio, window well, driveway or stairwell drains.

He will also look in basement areas or crawl spaces to identify the sump and its point of discharge.

 

How do I Prepare for an Inspection?

The only preparation needed for the inspection is to make sure that the sump pump is accessible for the inspector, please clear a path if needed.

 

What is the Inspector Looking For?

The inspector is looking for improper connections to the sanitary sewer system. An improper connection is defined as a connection that allows for clear water to be discharged directly into the separate sanitary sewer system.  Clear water should either be going to the storm sewer or be allowed to soak into the ground without entering the sanitary sewer.

 

What Happens After the Inspection?

Depending on the results of the inspection, nothing may need to be done.  If the inspector determines that there are improper connections and drainage, he will work with the home owner to provide a list of solutions.  A second inspection may be booked if necessary.

 

How Do I Book an Inspection?

The program is being offered to urban Marmora and Deloro village residents. Home inspections will be offered with daytime appointments between 08:00am -3:00pm. Evening and Saturday appointments are available if absolutely necessary.

Hydrant Flushing
LOGO.jpg

Hydrant flushing ensures proper flows for firefighting as well as insures a fresh supply to the residents. During hydrant flushing, sediment in the mains can be stirred up briefly causing dirty water. If this occurs please run your tap until the flow is clear. It is recommended not to do laundry during this period as it may cause stains on clothing.

The Municipality of Marmora & Lake Environmental Services will be flushing hydrants between the hours of 08:00-15:30 during the next two week’s beginning October 15, 2018.

        

Your patience during this period is appreciated.

 

The Municipality of Marmora and Lake would like to remind the public that the QMS policy as well as all annual water reports are accessible on the Municipal website at www.marmoraandlake.ca

 

Thank You

History in the Park a Success

The Municipality received a beautiful bronze plaque from the Hastings County Historical Society Tuesday night. The crowd came early looking for hot dogs that the Crowe Valley Lions Club were handing out before their weekly Music In The Park event. 

We were lucky to hear from some great speakers. Thanks to Mike Bossio (MP), Bob Hadley (Executive Assistant to Daryl Kramp (MPP)), Linda Bracken (Deputy Mayor), and Cathie Jones (Marmora Historical Foundation). For transcripts of the Marmora Historical Foundation and Linda Bracken's speech scroll down to the bottom of the page.

The Crowe Valley Lions Club were an integral part of the evening celebration, giving away 100 hot dogs to the attendees. They held their weekly Music in the Park, which is always well attended, and supplied the Municipality with a great sound system for the videos to close out the night.

The crowd enjoyed the educational miners loop videos, as well as the documentary Lest We Forget, a look at Deloro's mining contribution to both WWI and WWII.

Marmora Historical Foundation, by Andre Philpot

In 1820 three emigrants who were to reshape Upper Canada stepped off ships in Montreal.

The first, still a boy, was John Alexander MacDonald destined for Kingston, and to become the father of Confederation.

The second was William Lyon MacKenzie destined for Toronto who would be our most famous rebel and the man who would lead the colony towards democracy.

The third was an extraordinary entrepreneur heading here to Marmora to set up the colony’s first great industry.

That year, Charles Hayes, enticed by the colonial government, came from England to start Upper Canada’s first Iron Town and her first real industry.

Unlike most immigrants he travelled in some style and arrived in November 1st ,1820, at Kingston, ‘in perfect safety by steamboat’. But that was where the comfort and safety ended for his target was up here in what was endless bush virtually without settlers or roads. He had been sold on the idea of an ironworks based on an ‘inexhaustible mountain of iron ore’ at Blairton to floated by barge be processed to a site just upstream form here at the ‘great falls’ of the Crowe river.

Despite the isolation and hardship, by spring of 1821 the Hayes ironworks had began to grow around two great blast furnaces. They were  operated by the 200 hundred or so, old-world miners who Hayes enticed here with him. Fed with the Iron Ore from Blairton and wood from thousands of surrounding acres, the furnaces pored out tons of molten iron. Ballast, stoves, and, even two cannons, that Hayes declared to be ‘able and suited to defend the empire’, were produced. And this Village grew.

The difficulties of transporting such heavy products down muddy trails to markets so far away, meant steady financial loses and finally closure. In 1825 Hayes went back to Britain to pine for Marmora but never to return.

He left behind however an Irontown with the Blast Furnaces, the system of dams, the housing, the forest resources, and the village.  For the next century dreamers found it impossible to believe that it couldn’t work. Time after time they attempted to get the ironworks going again.

There was a move afoot to transfer the Kingston Penitentiary here and use the free labour. Even a plan to dig a canal for water transport to the Trent. Surely it would work if there were just better routes from Marmora to the markets of her products.

Later there was a rail line, right here through the park,(you are standing on it) , established to try again to make the works profitable.  Nothing seemed to work but it was never for lack of trying of for lack of dreaming.

By the 1880s the dreaming had subsided but not before the works had attracted a ‘who’s who’ of Upper Canada Society.

In the 1840s the mine manager, Anthony Manahan, could have changed history if only he were more popular. He ran against, and lost to John A. MacDonald, our future father of confederation’s who had embarked on first quest for high office. That election was a three- day affair, fueled by a lot of alcohol and ending with a public ‘shout out’ vote in the Kingston Town square.  John A. MacDonald was born for that sort of format and the dour Anthony Manahan was not—he was trounced. The rest, as they say, is history.

But who knows, had Manahan won, perhaps you would be standing now in the Capital of Canada!!

Over the next two centuries prospectors on a great treasure hunt for the mother lode, developed nearby mineral deposits. They dug up everything from marble, lithographic limestone, and lead, to gold and silver.

Mining Hamlets—Deloro, Cordova Mines, Malone, Eldorado, Bannockburn, etc.. etc., sprang up and each for a while thrived. As the plaque says, surnames of those first miners so many years ago are still prevalent today here in what is truly the birthplace of mining in Ontario.

Here’s something to think about:

In 2017, Canada celebrated its 150th anniversary.

In 2020, Marmora will begin to celebrate her 200th!

So--Let’s look upon the placing of this plaque, not as a single event, but as the beginning of the celebration of our extraordinary and unique heritage.

 

Linda Bracken, Deputy Mayor

When we heard about the opportunity to apply for a historical plaque we immediately thought of the miners in the area and how those miners became the roots of the Marmora family tree.

The Marmora Historical Foundation has a link to the 1861 Marmora Census. And while looking over that document so many names sounded familiar. There were 1500 names on the list.

14 Crawford's

14 Reed's

15 Hughes'

19 Campion's

20 Derry's

21 Gawley's

And the Shannon's and Jone's tied for 27 each.

Now, it's hard to tell if all of these families had miners among them. Some were Irish, English, Welsh, how many reasons were there, at that time, for people to make such a journey to the little hamlet of Marmora?

Whatever the reason for their journey, those names have been apart of the fabric of Marmora and area for generations. The men in the mines and the women making the home were hard and resilient people. I would say that those qualities are still prevalent today in Marmora and District. As we branch out as a municipality, we owe a lot to the miners that settled here. We now live in one of the most ecologically diverse areas of the province. I don't think you would live here if you didn't enjoy the nature that we are settled in. The Land Between they call it. Lucky for us the geology that made this land enticing to so many families still impacts our lives today.
