Master Municipal Class Environmental Assessment Master Planning Process for Regional Water Supply Servicing Strategy
The County is initiating a Master Municipal Class Environmental Assessment Master Planning Process to identify long-term drinking water servicing strategies for the municipality.
- Budget year: 2021
- Total cost: $143,557.00 plus HST
The County awarded the contract to CIMA Canada Inc. in March 2022. Notice of Study Commencement issued December 2022.
The study will identify and evaluate drinking water servicing alternatives for the urban centres of Picton, Wellington and Rossmore, as well as for the villages of Bloomfield, Ameliasburgh, Peat’s Point, Consecon and Carrying Place. A preferred water servicing strategy for these areas will be selected to minimize technical, socio-cultural, natural environmental and economic impacts.
This Master Planning Process will consider independent approaches for each serviced settlement area as well as possible joint or interconnecting solutions.
The Master Planning Process will be carried out in accordance with the Master Planning Process in the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment document (October 2000, amended in 2007, 2011 and 2015).
Public consultation is an integral component of the Master Planning process, and we value your input during the planning process. A Public Information Centre (PIC) will be held in association with the Master Planning process. Once a date for the PIC has been scheduled, invitation notices to the PIC will be published in local newspapers, posted on the County’s website and distributed to all individuals who express an interest in this project.
More details about the Master Planning process can be found in the staff report that went to Council in March 2022 recommending that the contract be awarded to CIMA Canada Inc. Click here to read the report.
