The Town of The Blue Mountains has initiated a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment to evaluate and select the preferred solution to address the need for the extension of a gravity sewer and associated sewage lift station, at the Town’s Craigleith Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP). Additionally, an assessment will be complete to determine if the septage and leachate receiving station should be relocated to the WWTP. The proposed work will include the following:
- Extending the sewage collection system from the existing gravity sewer on the southern boundary of the intersection of Grey Road 21 and Highway 26 north within the Long Point Road allowance to the Craigleith WWTP.
- Development of solutions for a new lift station to raise the wastewater from the new sanitary sewer into the treatment plant.
- Developing solutions for the relocation of the septage and leachate receiving station from its current location on Lakeshore Road to the WWTP site.
- Design of all facilities to accommodate imminent near-term and build out needs.
The gravity sewer along Long Point Road is considered a Schedule “A” project and may proceed; however, the pumping station and septage receiving station at the Craigleith WWTP on Long Point Road will be considered a Schedule “B” project. The proposed solutions will be evaluated considering natural, cultural, technical and economic environment, and the preferred solution will be selected in consultation with regulatory agencies and the public.
