The Water, Wastewater and Stormwater (W/WW/SWM) Master Plan is a strategic and comprehensive growth and infrastructure planning study to provide a basis for decision making to shape the City’s future growth.

The Master Plan consists of a review of growth projections, servicing policies, design criteria and completion of public consultation and servicing strategy evaluation under the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment Master Plan Process.The population and employment projection inputs are developed by the City planning department under the GRIDS 2 process and will consist of population, employment and densities within existing (Infill/Intensification) areas and new Greenfield growth to 2051.

The study will determine the short and long-term water, wastewater and stormwater infrastructure needs to support growth to the year 2051.

Study area for the Water, Wastewater and Storm Water Management Master Plan

This Master Plan will replace the existing the City-Wide Water and Wastewater Master Plan (2006) & Stormwater Management Master Plan (2007).

The objective of the integrated Master Plans is to: 

  • Provide a strategic vision for the next thirty years to accommodate future growth, and ensure safe, clean drinking water and effective environmental protection
  • Ensure safe, sustainable and optimized water and wastewater services
  • Provide a business case for the need, timing and cost of water, wastewater and stormwater services
