Master Plan Updates: Water Supply, Water Distribution & Storage, Wastewater Collection, & Wastewater Treatment

The City has initiated updates to four Master Plans: Water Supply, Water Distribution and Storage, Wastewater Collection, and Wastewater Treatment. The Master Plans will identify the water and wastewater servicing projects that will be required to accommodate growth and intensification over the planning horizon.

Status:  The Notice of Study Commencement was published in August 2017. A Public Information Centre (PIC) will be scheduled for the fall.

Consultant:  WSP Canada

Study Level: Municipal Class EA – Master Planning Process. Approach #2

Purpose: The Master Plans are being updated to identify future water and wastewater servicing needs to accommodate:

  • Residential and employment growth;
  • Intensification of the city as required by Provincial policy; and
  • Optimal design and delivery of water and wastewater servicing city-wide.

The study area encompasses the entire city, including the annexation lands.

Scope: Alternative water and wastewater servicing solutions will be developed and evaluated based on a high-level 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.  In accordance with Approach #2, the City will then undertake additional public consultation and detailed study of the Schedule ‘B’ Class EA projects that are anticipated to be constructed within the next 10 years. Additional notices relating to these Schedule ‘B’ projects will be issued at that time.

Key Considerations: Accommodating future water and wastewater demands, meeting regulatory requirements and the natural environment.
