Niagara Region evaluates water, waste infrastructure proposals for Port Colborne, Ontario
The Regional Municipality of Niagara has initiated a municipal class environmental assessment and project file on its preferred solutions for water and wastewater servicing in the City of Port Colborne, about 35 kilometres southwest of Niagara Falls.
The project file will be available for public review, until June 26.
A master servicing plan update last year identified several concerns, including a single watermain crossing the Welland Canal and the lack of an outlet for wastewater servicing for a proposed industrial park in the northeast section of the city.
The regional government’s preferred solutions include a new pumping station and a forcemain discharging directly to East Side Sewage Pumping Station. They also include a new elevated storage tank, abandonment the existing King Street elevated tank and extending the existing trunk watermain system north along Elm Street to Barrick Road, with a new, northerly crossing of the Welland Canal and connection to an existing trunk watermain at Chippawa Road.
The regional government says it will proceed with the recommendations of the project unless someone sends a request to the provincial environment minister requesting that the project comply with Part II of the Environmental Assessment Act.
“Following completion of this Class EA, Niagara Region intends to continue with planning and design activities for the construction of the preferred solutions,” the regional government stated in an announcement posted to its website.
Niagara Region is the upper tier of municipal government for Port Colborne, Niagara Falls, St. Catharines and nine other cities and towns in the area.
