2020 Water Master Plan Update & EA

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The Town of Amherstburg has initiated a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (MCEA) which includes updating the Town’s Water Master Plan to provide guidance to the Town with respect to the distribution/supply system operations and planning of improvements and enhancements to the system. Updates to Master Plan documents are recommended to account for changes in growth planning and rates. New infrastructure, aging infrastructure, population growth and changes to potable water servicing requirements created a need to update the Water Master Plan since its latest revision in 2010. In 2019, the Town retained Stantec Consulting Ltd. to prepare an update to the Water Master Plan for publication in 2020.

The study area outlined in the Document Library, covers an area of approximately 18,600 hectares and is comprised mostly of rural agricultural land with small pockets of residential and industrial/commercial/ institutional land use.

The Town of Amherstburg Water Master Plan Update and Environmental Assessment Final Phase 2 Report was published on April 7, 2020 and is now available for download in the Document Library.

A key component of the MCEA process includes notification and consultation with stakeholders. ‘Talk the Burg’ is being used as the primary means to facilitate public consultation during Phase 2 of the study. If you wish to provide feedback, have your name added to the project stakeholder list, or have any questions about this project, please leave a comment below.

    I find it interesting that the study stops at Walker Rd (Cty Rd 11). We are located just east of Walker Sideroad. Our water supply is a part of you system but it is not included in this study. Why is that?

    NicoleS Asked 3 months ago

    The Water Masterplan does include an area east of Walker Road (County Road 11). The initial study map that was provided has been updated to depict the areas east of Walker Road that are included in the study.

    Is the Town considering reintroducing Fluoride into our water system? There have been many studies, in communities where Fluoride was removed from the water systems, and dentists have seen an increase in poor dental health (i.e. cavities, etc.) particularly in children.

    The Town has not included the addition of fluoride in the 2020 Water Masterplan
