The City of Hamilton has initiated the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment or Class EA process to construct an elevated water reservoir providing floating storage for Pressure District 18 in Ancaster. The need for an elevated water reservoir was documented in the City’s Water and Wastewater Master Plan Class Environmental Assessment Report (November 2006).
The purpose of this Class EA study is to determine the preferred location to construct an elevated water reservoir within the study area.
Study status: Active.
Classification: Schedule B. Phases 1 and 2 will be completed for this specific study in order to complete Schedule B requirements by evaluating the impacts of this project on technical, natural, cultural, economic and social environments. A Conceptual Design, as outlined in the City’s Consultants Procedure Manual, will be completed to identify the main aspects of the project.
