Shane Russell started this petition to City of Cambridge and

The City of Cambridge is proposing the permanent closure of the RV / trailer dumping station at Churchill Park in October 2021. No additional information has been provided about where residents with RVs and trailers can empty their black and grey tanks or if a new site is even available. 

If residents don't have a convenient and clearly marked location to empty their tanks, this could result in sewage being dumped into catchbasins and storm sewers because they may not necessarily understand that there are different types of sewers, and they don't know where your waste actually goes after you dump into a catchbasin and chase it with some grey water.  That is exactly the kind of thing that we need to avoid for the cleanliness of our public waterways and drinking water sources.  

There is no evidence that the City of Cambridge has considered flow monitoring or survey data to gain an understanding of the order of magnitude usage this site gets. We will have used this dumping station no less than 20 times before the end of the camping season and each time there are others immediately before or after us. We've also posted about this on numerous facebook groups and given the response, we know there are many people in the Cambridge/Waterloo Region who will be impacted by the closure. 

Many campgrounds do not have dumping stations and when you fill your water at home, both the water and sewage is paid for based on water meter readings, so you will have paid Cambridge for the sewage disposal, but will no longer be provided with a location to dump it. 

Please sign this petition to help us prevent the City of Cambridge from closing this site at Churchill Park.
