Wellington Trunk Watermain and Sanitary Sewer
The County is planning to construct a new trunk watermain and trunk sanitary sewer in the Village of Wellington. The new trunks will be constructed from the location of the existing Water and Wastewater Treatments Plants to the east along Main Street, north on Cleminson Street, east along the Millennium Trail and then connect to the new Water Tower on Belleville Street.
The project also includes a new sanitary pumping station located on the Millennium Trail near the intersection with West Street. This new pumping station is a component of the new trunk sanitary sewer.
- Budget Year: 2020 (Trunks), 2023 (Pumping Station)
- Total cost: To be determined (not yet tendered)
Currently in Detailed Design Phase
Project to be tendered and construction to commence in 2023.
The Wellington Master Servicing Plan (MSP) completed by the County in 2021 recommended constructing new trunk watermain and sanitary sewer to service undeveloped land north of the Millennium Trail. Due to the topography in the area wastewater cannot flow by gravity to the existing Wastewater Treatment Plant so a sanitary pumping station and associated forcemain shall be constructed as part of the new trunk sanitary sewer. The sanitary pumping station was not included in the Wellington MSP so the County is currently completing an addendum to the Master Plan Class Environmental Assessment. Project funded by area-specific Development Charges for the Wellington Urban Serviced Area.
A public consultation centre was held on Thursday, September 7.
A public information on Wellington water and wastewater infrastructure was held on August 31, 2023.
