The purpose of the Water Distribution Master Plan is to evaluate the Town’s long-term water distribution needs and identify a preferred solution to be implemented as required to match the Town’s growth. Only Schedule A and A+ projects are approved through this Master Plan. Additional studies and consultation will be required for Schedule B projects (e.g. storage facilities and pumping stations) and Schedule C projects (e.g. new or expanded water treatment facilities).
This study was carried out under Schedule ‘A+’ of the Municipal Class EA. While the Master Plan addresses the water supply/infrastructure need and justification at a broad level, more detailed studies will be conducted at a later date for some of the projects included in the Master Plan, including:
By this Notice, this Master Plan Report, which contains details of the proposed alternatives, is being placed on public record for a thirty (30) day review period in accordance with the requirements of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment process. Interested persons may review this document and provide comments to the Town within this 30-day period. Subject to the comments received as a result of this Notice, as well as funding opportunities and the receipt of necessary approvals, the Town may then proceed with the works.
The Master Plan Report is available for review on the Town’s website (coming soon). A copy of the completed report is available now at the Operations Department counter at Town Hall (32 Mill St, Thornbury) and the L.E. Shore Memorial Library (173 Bruce St S, Thornbury).
