Ailsa Craig Water Storage - Municipality of North Middlesex Municipal Class Environmental Assessment Community Newsletter - September 2019

The Municipality of North Middlesex is supplied with potable water from Lake Huron. There is currently no built-in water storage facility within Ailsa Craig, which makes the community vulnerable to not having enough water available during scheduled or emergency repairs or maintenance to the Lake Huron Primary Water Supply System. The Municipality identified the need to develop a potable water storage strategy. This study provides the basis for why a storage solution is needed and a recommended design and location for storage in Ailsa Craig. The study follows the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment Process (EA) Schedule B project, which includes consideration of a process for relevant social, environmental and engineering factors in the planning and design process. Public and agency input is integrated into the decisionmaking process.

This newsletter provides an update on the study following the June 18 and 20, 2019 Public Information Centre.

New information on the preferred location for the water tower is included on page 4 of this newsletter.

Parkhill Wastewater Treatment Facility - Municipality of North Middlesex Municipal Class Environmental Assessment Community Newsletter - September 2019

Wastewater treatment in the community of Parkhill is currently provided by two lagoons, located north of the town, on Parkhill Drive. The lagoons are at capacity, which severely limits the amount of new growth the community can accommodate. New residential, commercial, and industrial growth must be connected to the Municipality’s sanitary system. In 2011, the Municipality took action to minimize stormwaterfrom entering the system to reduce average flow. A review of sludge buildup and lagoon capacity was completed in 2016.The Municipality is now exploring new wastewater treatment alternatives in Parkhill.

The study follows the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment Process (EA) for Schedule C project, which includes consideration of relevant social, environmental and engineering factors in the planning and design process. Public and agency input is integrated into the decision-making process.

This newsletter provides an update on the study following the June 18 and 20, 2019 Public Information Centre.

New information on the preferred design option for the wastewater treatment facility is included on page 4 of this newsletter (Phase 3 of the Class EA study process).
