Promotion for PIC #2 on Engage Hamilton

 

The City of Hamilton has initiated the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment or Class EA process to construct the twinning trunk watermain for more reliable water services in Waterdown community. The need for watermain twinning at downstream of Pumping Station (PS) #16 was identified in the City’s Drinking Water Quality Management System (DWQMS) Infrastructure Review due to the criticality of the single trunk main to supply water to Waterdown community, as described in the City's Water and Wasterwater Master Plan (2006).

The purpose of this Class EA study is to determine the preferred alternative to construct the trunk watermain twinning 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 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.

Study area for Waterdown Truck Watermain Twinning

All notices and public consultation materials will remain for the duration of the study.

Consultation with, and input from the public and government review agencies will be a vital component of the Class EA study. Members of the public and review agencies are invited to provide comment for incorporation into the overall planning and design of the Waterdown twinning trunk watermain in the above study area. Additional notices will be advertised to inform, and to solicit further input from the public as the study progresses.
