Water and Wastewater Master Plan
Notice of Study Commencement
The Town of Carleton Place (Town) has witnessed unprecedented growth over the past 5 years, and this growth is expected to continue into the foreseeable future. To accommodate growth and ensure the integrity of the Town’s servicing infrastructure and capacity for existing and future development, the Town has initiated a Water and Wastewater Master Plan (WWMP) to provide a long-range plan for water and wastewater needs over the next 20 years. The WWMP will review opportunities to optimize the performance of existing infrastructure, while identifying the most sustainable approach to serve the Town’s existing communities as well as new development.
This study is being undertaken in accordance with Approach #2 of the Master Planning Process, as outlined in Appendix 4 of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (MCEA) document (October 2000, as amended in 2007, 2011 and 2015). As such, the WWMP will address Phases 1 and 2 of the MCEA process to fulfill the requirements for the recommended Schedule B projects, and will form the basis for the recommended Schedule C water and wastewater projects identified within the WWMP report. Given that the findings of the WWMP are anticipated to confirm the need for expansion of the Water Treatment Plant and the Wastewater Treatment Plant, the Town may proceed with Phases 3 and 4 of the MCEA process for these projects.
