Notice of Study Commencement

Pressure District 2/3 Water Storage Tank Municipal Class Environmental Assessment

The Study

The City of Brantford has initiated a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (MCEA) study for siting a new water storage tank to service existing and future residents in the City’s Pressure District (PD) 2/3. The need for additional storage in PD 2/3 was identified in the recent City of Brantford Water, Wastewater and Stormwater Master Servicing Plan Update.

The study will evaluate various alternatives for siting a new water storage tank to address the need for additional storage within the distribution system, in addition to associated transmission watermains and modifications to existing pumping stations to meet service area demands.

The Process

The study is being conducted in accordance with Schedule ‘B’ requirements of the Municipal Engineers Association "Municipal Class Environmental Assessment" manual (October 2000, as recently amended in 2015) which is approved under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act.

How to Get Involved

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 2022 to present the issues being addressed and opportunities being considered, study findings, and the evaluation of siting options for the new water storage tank, including the preferred recommended site, and associated infrastructure. Details of the PIC will be advertised prior to the event.
