Water Master Plan Environmental Assessment






In 2019, The Town of Amherstburg (the Town) initiated a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (MCEA) and retained Stantec Consulting, Ltd. to prepare an update to the Town’s Water Master Plan. This Water Master Plan update provides guidance to the Town with respect to the distribution/supply system operations and planning of improvements and enhancements to the system, as well as identifies the need for Schedule A, B or C projects.

The study area is outlined on the key plan. It covers an area of approximately 20,800 hectares and is comprised mostly of rural agricultural land with small pockets of residential and industrial/ commercial/ institutional land use.

Five (5) Schedule A+ projects and one (1) Schedule B or C project are recommended to address future growth requirements and provide added redundancy to key watermains. Additionally, one (1) Schedule A or B project is recommended as the preferred alternative solution in providing additional capacity in the eastern rural regions of the system. The project Schedules should be confirmed if the Town proceeds to implement any of these recommended projects and appropriate MCEA processes should be undertaken.

This Notice of Completion hereby satisfies the MCEA requirements for the Water Master Plan.  Click here to review the Water Master Plan. Subject to comments received as a result of this Notice, the Water Master Plan will be presented to Municipal Council for approval.
