An expanding business in New Bothwell now has Hanover council searching for land so they can expand their sewage lagoon in the area.

At a Hanover council meeting last Wednesday Hanover CAO Luc Lahaie said the municipality has hired Red River Group’s Gordon Daman to begin negotiations as they look to purchase land to expand the New Bothwell sewage lagoon.

Lahaie said there is a need for increased sewage capacity in the area because of a planned expansion of local business Bothwell Cheese.

"Bothwell Cheese is currently expanding, and we are looking at expanding our current new Bothwell lagoon," Lahaie said.

"They have an aggressive business plan for the next 10 years, and they have come to us and said ‘we need that capacity.’"

Lahaie added there are currently a few options for land that could be purchased for the expansion, and that they are looking to purchase up to 40 acres.

"At this point there are a few different option, we just need to find a willing land owner," Lahaie said.

Lahaie said that if completed the lagoon would be used both by businesses and residents in the area.
