Class Environmental Assessment Study

Drainage Master Plan

The City is undertaking a Drainage Master Plan to identify the existing drainage deficiencies and develop drainage solutions to address the deficiencies, reduce flooding, resolve public safety concerns and improve maintenance opportunities throughout Barrie.

Status: The Notice of Study Commencement was published in June 2017. A Public Information Centre (PIC) was held on November 2, 2017. A second PIC is scheduled for April 17, 2018.

Consultant:  C.C. Tatham & Associates Limited

Study Level: Municipal Class EA – Master Planning Process, Approach #2 **PLEASE NOTE: We have switched the study to Approach #2 prior to the second PIC.

Purpose: To consider design alternatives and establish the preferred recommended design alternative for drainage improvements throughout the City of Barrie.

Scope: The study is being completed in accordance with Approach #2 of the Master Planning Process outlined in the Municipal Engineers Association Municipal Class Environmental Assessment document (October 2000, amended in 2007, 2011 and 2015).  Alternative drainage solutions will be developed and evaluated based on their natural, physical, social, cultural, and economic impacts and the opportunities and constraints of the project. A Notice of Completion will be issued for Schedule B projects. The Master Plan will become the basis for, and be used in support of, future investigations for Schedule C projects identified within it.  The Study Area excludes the Sophia Creek watershed and Mulcaster drainage area which was studied under a separate project.

Key Considerations: Impacts on property, municipal road systems, public safety and the natural environment.

Public Information Centre #2:  A second Public Information Centre is scheduled.

Date:        Tuesday, April 17, 2018

Time:        4:00pm to 8:00pm
