Notice of Filing of Addendum: Water Pollution Control Plant and Sanitary Pump Station Optimization and Expansion Environmental Study Report Addendum

Municipality of North Grenville Kemptville Water Pollution Control Plant and Bridge Street Sanitary Pump Station Optimization and Expansion Environmental Study Report (ESR) Addendum

North Grenville is currently experiencing high growth and development pressures and submitted an Environmental Study Report (ESR) Addendum in April 2019 to address their need for additional treatment capacity of the Kemptville Water Pollution Control Plant (WPCP) to service community growth. 

Recommended Alternative and Preferred Design Concepts

A new Addendum has now been completed to update the 2019 ESR Addendum. The Ministry of the Solicitor General (SOLGEN) and Infrastructure Ontario (IO) recently initiated planning for the future construction of the Eastern Ontario Correctional Complex (EOCC), which is to be located on the provincially owned former Kemptville College Campus lands and is expected to be operational by 2027.  The EOCC will connect to the existing sanitary collection system, discharging to the Kemptville WPCP via the Bridge Street PS.  The new Addendum contains details of the required rated treatment capacity, raw wastewater quality design parameters and WPCP upgrades scope modifications that are required to accommodate the new Eastern Ontario Correctional Complex (EOCC). SOLGEN will be providing the necessary funds for these accommodations. Please note that only the changes proposed in the Addendum are open for review.

By this Notice, the ESR Addendum is being placed on public record for a thirty (30) day review period in accordance with the requirements of the Municipal Class EA process.  Interested persons may review this document and provide comments to the Municipality.  Subject to comments received as a result of this Notice, funding opportunities, and the receipt of necessary approvals, the Municipality may then proceed with the works.

The ESR Addendum is available for review beginning February 2, 2022 and will be available at the Municipal Office, located at 285 County Road #44, Kempville, ON K0G 1J0, open Monday to Friday, 8:30 am to 5:00 pm. The ESR Addendum will also be available for viewing here on the North Grenville website.
