In 2010, Phases 1 to 4 of the Class EA process were completed and the Municipality initiated Phase 5 of the process by commencing dialogue with the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority regarding the potential for a phosphorus offsetting program. Due to financial constraints, further progress with the phosphorus offsetting program and proposed Water Pollution Control Plant upgrades identified in the Environmental Study Report (ESR) were deferred. An updated Class EA is required as there have been significant changes in the Project Environment since completion of the ESR (i.e., changes to flows associated with the 2010 Class EA design period, project costs, changing receiving stream quality, development of innovative and energy efficient technology, etc.)
As part of the Class EA process for reviewing the Water Pollution Control Plant and Sanitary Pump Station Optimization and Expansion, public comment during the evaluation of alternative solutions will be requested. The Municipality is planning to conduct two public information sessions during the course of the study. Project information will also be available to the public at the Municipal Office and here on the Municipality’s website, www.northgrenville.ca.
We are interested in hearing any comments or concerns that you may have about this project. A public database of comments will be maintained and, with the exception of personal information, included in the study documentation that will be made available for public review. Parties interested in providing input or that wish to obtain additional information at this stage of the study are asked to submit comments in writing to:
