St. Andrews Drive Wastewater Pumping Station Upgrades

The Project

The City of Brantford’s (the City) recent Water, Wastewater and Stormwater Master Servicing Plan Update identified critical municipal infrastructure upgrades required for the St. Andrews WWPS to continue servicing an upstream catchment area consisting of a residential neighbourhood in Brantford’s Northwest Industrial Area.

The planned improvements to the St. Andrews WWPS, located on 119 St. Andrews Drive, include upgrading structural, mechanical (including new pumps) and electrical equipment and installing emergency storage as proposed by the most recent Master Servicing Plan that projected required upgrades to the City’s pumping stations up to 2051.

The Process

The City is notifying pertinent stakeholders that the St. Andrews Wastewater Pumping Station (WWPS) Upgrades project is currently undergoing the Detailed Design Phase (2023 to 2024), with Construction scheduled for 2025.

Under the “Municipal Class Environmental Assessment” (manual updated in 2023) Project Descriptions, these works are sufficiently minor to be exempt from a Screening Process or classification as a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment Schedule B or C project. However, as a matter of due diligence, project information will be made available to the public, Indigenous communities and governmental review agencies.

Public Involvement

Public, Indigenous communities, governmental review agencies, and stakeholder groups’ input and comments are invited for incorporation into the planning and design of the upgrade project.

The City would like anyone with an interest in this study to have an opportunity to provide input, which will help the project team in the decision-making process. A Public Information Centre (PIC) will be held in early 2024 to share information regarding this study. This will include the issues and opportunities being addressed, study findings, and the evaluation of alternatives for the St. Andrews WWPS, including the preferred recommended upgrades to the WWPS. Details regarding this future PIC will be advertised as the project progresses.
