Braneida Stormwater Management Facility Retrofit and Downstream Channel Remediation

The City of Brantford has commenced a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) Schedule ‘B’ for the retrofit of the existing Braneida Stormwater Management Facility (SWMF) at Adams Boulevard in the City of Brantford and to remediate the erosion hazard of the downstream channel.

The proposed retrofits will provide for water quality and quantity control in compliance with current provincial standards. The study is intended to identify and evaluate retrofit alternatives and downstream watercourse rehabilitation opportunities.

 The Process

The study is being conducted in compliance with Schedule ‘B’ requirements of the Municipal Engineers Association "Municipal Class Environmental Assessment," (October 2000, as amended 2007 & 2011) as approved under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act. A key component of the study will be consultation with interested stakeholders (public, landowners and agencies).

Consultation with the public, relevant technical agencies and stakeholder groups is a key element of the Class EA study. To facilitate this, a Public Information Centre (PIC) will be held to present project information and progress. 

The PIC will be held virtually and the will be available on this project page. The PIC notice  will be advertised during the study and mailed to agencies and stakeholders to provide opportunities for involvement in the study.
