Water and Wastewater Treatment Plant Expansion - Class Environmental Assessments


The Town of Carleton Place (Town) Council approved the updated Water and Wastewater Master Plan in September 2022. A recommended number of water and wastewater projects were identified as part of the Master Plan, including the expansion of the Water Treatment Plant and the Wastewater Treatment Plant.  The Town is now initiating Phases 3 and 4 of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) process for the proposed modifications to the existing Water and Wastewater Treatment Plants.

Study Process

Both studies are being undertaken in accordance with the Class EA planning and design process for Schedule C projects, as outlined in the Municipal Engineers Association document (October 2000, amended in 2007, 2011 and 2015), which is approved under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act. The Master Plan was undertaken in accordance with the Master Plan process, which generally addresses Phases 1 and 2 of the Class EA process. The Town is proceeding with Phases 3 and 4 of the Class EA process to complete the planning and preliminary design for these recommended projects, which generally includes identifying and evaluating a range of alternative design concepts, identifying a preferred design, and documenting the decision-making process within an Environmental Study Report.

Online Public Information Centre

As part of this study, a comprehensive consultation process is being undertaken and your participation is encouraged. An Online Public Information Centre (PIC) has been scheduled to present the study background, evaluation criteria, alternative and recommended design concepts for each expansion project and next steps in the Class EA process. The Online PIC will be available for your review and feedback on the study website. A recorded presentation is available for viewing as part of the Online PIC beginning Monday, December 5, 2022, and comments are kindly requested by Monday, December 19, 2022.  

We look forward to hearing from you!
