In 2019, the City of Hamilton initiated a Class Environmental Assessment study to determine the preferred location for a new septage waste haulage receiving station in Hamilton to accept sewage from residential, commercial and industrial sources from areas that are not currently serviced by the City’s sanitary sewer system.
Update: Through the evaluation of a number of areas, the preferred site was located on Dartnall Road between Rymal Road East and Twenty Road East. Following the Class EA, the City was unsuccessful in securing land for the proposed new SWHRS. As such, the City has now initiated a Class EA Addendum to find a new preferred location for the new SWHRS. This Addendum study will focus on changes to the 2019 Class EA recommendations and preferred solution.
This study includes public, review agency, and First Nations consultation, evaluation of alternatives, assessment of the impacts of the proposed works, and identification of measures to mitigate any adverse impacts.
