Notice of Completion

Municipality of Kincardine
Expansion of the Kincardine Water System and Treatment Plant
Schedule C Municipal Class Environmental Assessment Study

Notice of Completion


The Municipality of Kincardine (Municipality) retained Stantec Consulting Ltd. to complete a Schedule C Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) to identify options for expansion of the Kincardine Water System and Water Treatment Plant (WTP) at 155 Durham Street in Kincardine. The EA addressed potential community growth in the study area and watermain extension to Bruce Power. See study area map.

The preferred solution includes expansion of the Kincardine WTP within the existing site and an extension of the existing watermain approximately 1.1 km north to the Bruce Power boundary. A booster pumping station is also proposed along the existing watermain in the general area near Stoney Island Cresent or Concession 5 on Bruce Road 23 to meet hydraulic conditions. The location will be confirmed in Detailed Design based on available property.

An Environmental Study Report (ESR) summarizing the Class EA Study process and findings is available online for a 30-day public review period starting January 25, 2024 on the Municipality’s website:

Interested persons may provide written comments between January 25, 2024 and February 24, 2024 to Adam Weishar, C.E.T, Director of Infrastructure and Development, Municipality of Kincardine, 1475 Concession 5, RR5, Kincardine ON, N2Z 2X6,, or discussed via telephone 519-396-3468, ext. 7121.

Subject to comments received following this Notice and the receipt of approvals, the Municipality intends to proceed with construction of the recommended project, as outlined in the ESR.
