Mid-Spencer Creek/Greensville Rural Settlement Area Subwatershed Study

The City of Hamilton has initiated a Subwatershed and Class Environmental Assessment study for the Mid-Spencer Creek and Greensville Rural Settlement Area (PDF, 184 KB). Residents in the Greensville RSA and the subwatershed are currently serviced by private septic systems and groundwater-sourced municipal communal, private communal or individual wells.

The study will set a management strategy for:

  • surface water such as streams and stormwater
  • groundwater
  • community servicing such as water and septic
  • natural areas such as wetlands and woodlots

Location: There are two distinct study areas for this project, the Greensville Rural Settlement Area or RSA and the Mid-Spencer Creek Subwatershed. Both are located within the Spencer Creek watershed, a majority of which is located within the western portion of the City of Hamilton.

Study status: Active

Classification: Master Plan (Approach 1)
