The City of Hamilton has initiated a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) study following the Schedule B process to develop and assess alternative solutions to replace the existing Main Street & Whitney Avenue (Main & Whitney, HD17A) Water Pumping Station (WPS).

The City of Hamilton is planning to construct a new water pumping station to replace the existing HD17A WPS at a new site near its current location to provide water service to Pressure District 17 (PD17). The purpose of this Class EA study is to determine the preferred location for a new pumping station within the study area to service customers in PD17, and to enhance
water system security and reliability.

This study will define the problems/opportunities associated with the existing HD17A WPS, assess alternative solutions, and determine the preferred location for a new WPS. A conceptual design will be completed identifying the main design aspects of the preferred alternative. Once the new pumping station is commissioned, the existing HD17A WPS will be decommissioned, as a Schedule A+ project.

Location: Main Street & Whitney Avenue (HD17A) Water Pumping Station

Status: Active

Classification: Schedule A+, B projects will be recommended in this Class EA. Phases 1 and 2 will be completed for this specific study in order to complete Schedule B requirements by evaluating the project impacts on technical, natural, cultural, economic and social environments. A Conceptual Design will be completed to identify the main aspects of the project preferred alternative.

The City of Hamilton encourages the public and stakeholders to participate in this planning process. Public input and comments are encouraged throughout the Class EA process and can be directed to the project managers. There are two Public Information Centres (PIC) planned for this study. The first PIC will present existing conditions and the problem/opportunity statement as well as obtain feedback about the study.
