What is this study about?
Niagara Region has started an environmental assessment for the Baker Road Wastewater Treatment Plant Pollution Prevention Control Plan and Wastewater Master Servicing Plan Update. This Wastewater Treatment Plant services the Town of Grimsby, the Town of Lincoln and the Township of West Lincoln/Smithville area. The recommendations from the study will ensure we can accommodate further growth expected by 2041 and beyond and meet the regulatory requirements established by the Ministry of Environment, Conservation and Parks.
How is this study undertaken?
This study will satisfy Phases 1 and 2 of the Municipal Engineers Association Class Environmental Assessment process (October 2000, as amended in 2007, 2011 and 2015), which is an approved process under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act. This study will include an evaluation of alternatives to support the long-term sustainability and management of the wastewater systems.
Public feedback is important. Information about the project will be available on Niagara Region’s website as part of Public Information Centre # 1. You can learn about how this project will contribute to Niagara Region’s overall growth plan, key servicing issues being considered, and how you can have your voice heard.
Information regarding the 2021 Baker Road Pollution Prevention Control Plan and Wastewater Master Servicing Plan Update will be made available on the project webpage beginning Aug. 25. This will be followed by a two-week period to submit Public Information Centre related comments to the Project Team.
