Master Servicing Plan 

Master Servicing Plan for Water, Sanitary and Stormwater Services

In September 2014, Brantford City Council approved the recommendations in the 2014 Master Servicing Plan for water, wastewater and storm water services. Staff will add the Master Servicing Plan recommendations to the 10-year capital forecast and the servicing policies will be incorporated into Brantford’s Official Plan. The Master Servicing Plan will be reviewed with the City’s Transportation Master Plan and the Official Plan Review within five years. Click to access the September 8, 2014 Report to Council.

The Plan has been split into six PDFs however, some files are still quite large. These documents are in Adobe PDF format and will require the Adobe PDF Reader Plugin. Contact Tara Gudgeon at 519-759-1350, ext. 2330 or by email at  taragudgeon@brantford.ca to request accessible materials. 

The Study

The City of Brantford completed the Master Servicing Plan for Water, Sanitary and Stormwater services. The Study developed a comprehensive plan that incorporates all facets of the management, expansion and funding of the City’s water, sanitary and storm systems to the year 2031.

The Study provides the City of Brantford with strategies necessary to manage infrastructure improvements and growth in the most effective and efficient manner. The study also identifies the individual projects required to complement these strategies, and prioritizes these projects based on need and required timing.

The Process

The Study has defined existing problems and opportunities, considered and evaluated solutions and identified preferred water, wastewater and stormwater servicing strategies. The Study follows the Master Planning Process of the Municipal Engineer’s Association. The Master Plan follows Approach #2 which will fulfill the requirements for Schedule A, A+, and select Schedule B projects and becomes the basis for future investigations for specific Schedule C projects. The preliminary preferred water, sanitary and stormwater servicing strategy has not identified any Schedule B projects that will be satisfied under this Master Servicing Plan.

Three public information centres were held on June 26th, 2013, October 29th, 2013 and April 1st, 2014 as part of the Class EA process and are documented in the report. The review period for the plan began on July 14 and ended on August 12, 2014. 

Objective

The objective of the Study is to develop a comprehensive plan that will incorporate all facets of the management, expansion and funding of the water, sanitary and storm systems for the entire City to the year 2031 and beyond.
