Water and Wastewater Servicing Master Plan Update

Notice of Commencement and Open House

THE PROJECT:

The Municipality of Kincardine is updating the Water and Wastewater Servicing Master Plan for the communities of Kincardine, Tiverton and Lakeshore area from Kincardine to Inverhuron. The Master Plan was adopted in 2018 and since that time there has been residential and non-residential growth, additional development proposals and new and upgraded infrastructure within the systems. The updated Master Plan will involve a review of existing water treatment, storage, and supply infrastructure, and sanitary sewage collection, pumping, and treatment infrastructure. This update is being completed concurrently with a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (MCEA) for an expansion to the Kincardine Water Treatment Plant, which is already an anticipated need based on potential community growth in combination with the potential to add Bruce Power as a water customer. Information from the Master Plan will inform and be used in the MCEA.

The Master Plan will include a review of future infrastructure needs for a 20-year period as they relate to key components of the water and wastewater systems. Upon completion, the Master Plan will serve as a strategic document for the continued provision of water and wastewater services that will integrate with other major planning, development and financing plans and policies. The Master Plan will also identify recommended projects and outline estimated timelines for implementation.

THE ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT PROCESS:

The Water and Wastewater Servicing Master Plan Update is being conducted in accordance with the requirements of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment process, dated October 2000, as amended in 2007, under the Environmental Assessment Act. Master Plan studies incorporate Phases 1 & 2 of the MCEA process and also includes consultation with the general public, community stakeholders, government review agencies and First Nation and Métis communities.
