Infrastructure Master Plans were prepared for all of Barrie, and provide guidance on many infrastructure projects required for the successful intensification and development of land.
The Master Plans were last updated in 2019 to identify future water and wastewater servicing needs to accommodate:
The study area encompassed the entire city, including the
Alternative water and wastewater servicing solutions were developed and evaluated based on a review of their natural, physical, social, cultural and financial impacts. The Master Plans will identify the water and wastewater servicing projects that will be required to accommodate growth and intensification over the planning horizon.
Key Considerations: Accommodating future water and wastewater demands, meeting regulatory requirements and the natural environment.
Water Supply Master Plan
Water Storage & Distribution
The purpose of the Water Storage and Distribution Master Plan is to identify the preferred solution for delivering potable water to homes and businesses as well as for storing water to meet fluctuating demands throughout the day and to protect the City for fire and emergency purposes.
Anne Street Booster Pump Station
The purpose of the Wastewater Treatment Master Plan is to identify the preferred solution requirements to the year 2041 for treating wastewater collected from homes and businesses before it is discharged to the environment.

In March 2017, the City of Barrie (City) retained Tatham Engineering Limited (Tatham) to prepare a Drainage Master Plan for the City following Approach #2 of the Master Planningprocess outlined in the Municipal Engineers Association (MEA) Municipal Class Environmental Assessment Document (October 2000, as amended in 2007, 2011 and 2015).
The study area for the Drainage Master Plan includes the entire City of Barrie excluding the Sophia Creek watershed, Mulcaster drainage area and Annexation Lands (which were studied under separate projects).
Key Considerations: Impacts on property, municipal road systems, public safety and the natural environment.
Drainage Master Plan Report (March 2019)
Main body of the report
Appendix A - Figures
Figures from the main body of the report
Appendix B – Hydrologic and Hydraulic Modelling
A technical memorandum on the detailed computer modeling information used to model the existing and future scenarios. This appendix also includes the geotechnical report that was used to determine infiltration rates.
Appendix C – Background Recommendations
Contains a summary of the previous studies that were used as input into this 2019 Drainage Master Plan
Appendix D – Private Property Flooding
This appendix contains a list of properties that potentially could be impacted by flooding during a severe storm event. This is only an estimate for comparison purposes and does not replace floodplain mapping or site specific flood studies.
Appendix E – Fluvial Geomorphic & Erosion Threshold Assessment
Contains the report completed by WatersEdge consulting. The report identifies the areas of existing erosion through geomorphic field assessments and identifies erosion repair projects.
Appendix F - Source Water Protection
Appendix G – Natural Heritage Assessment
Contains a technical memorandum by Azimuth Environmental to that identifies potential terrestrial and fisheries constraints regarding Natural Heritage Features and Functions associated with the defined study area, including Species at Risk and general characterization of vegetation communities, fish and fish habitat.
Appendix H – Archeological Assessment
A Stage 1 Archaeological Assessment was completed: 1) to provide information about the property’s geography, history, previous archaeological fieldwork and current land condition. 2) to evaluate in detail the property’s archaeological potential, which will support recommendations for Stage 2 survey for all or parts of the property; and 3) To recommend appropriate strategies for Stage 2 survey.
Appendix I – Cultural Heritage Review
This report review properties potentially impacted by drainage projects on Barrie's existing heritage inventory; and, any additional properties of prospective heritage value that are on site, adjacent or nearby, but have not yet been identified on Barrie's heritage inventory.
Appendix J – PIC#1
Contains information related to Public Information Centre #1 held in November of 2017.
Appendix K – Phosphorus Reduction
A technical memorandum to identify and assess stormwater management facility (SWMF) retrofit opportunities and low impact development (LID) measures, with the primary intent of reducing phosphorus discharge to Lake Simcoe.
Appendix L – Preliminary Preferred Solution
Documentation of the preliminary preferred alternative presented as PIC#2
Appendix M – PIC#1
Contains information related to Public Information Centre #2 held in April of 2018.
Appendix N – Conceptual Drawings
