Wellington Master Servicing Plan

The County of Prince Edward has completed the master plan for water, sanitary, and stormwater services for the Wellington Urban Centre.

The master plan considered, evaluated alternatives, and identified the preferred infrastructure upgrades for water treatment and distribution, wastewater treatment and collection, and stormwater management to accommodate immediate development and long-term growth opportunities to full ‘build out’ of the urban boundary, as per the Wellington Urban Centre Secondary Plan.

This study has completed Phases 1 and 2 (‘Schedule B’) of the Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) process, as outlined by the Municipal Engineers Association.

Summary of Preferred Infrastructure Upgrades

Preferred infrastructure upgrades are shown in the table below. All projects fall under the ‘Schedule B’ project category within the Class EA process unless noted otherwise. Projects that belong to the ‘Schedule B’ project can proceed with further detailed studies, design and construction after the public review period. Projects that belong to the ‘Schedule C’ category can proceed to Phase 3 and 4 of the Class EA process.

Requests on other grounds will not be considered. Requests should include the requester contact information and full name for the MECP.
