Chatham-Kent Water and Wastewater Master Plan

The Public Utilities Commission for the Municipality of Chatham-Kent, through its consultant AECOM has completed the draft Water and Wastewater (W&WW) Master Plan study.

This study was undertaken in accordance with the master planning process of the Municipal. Engineers Association MCEA document as amended in March 2023. The water and wastewater master plan followed Approach 1 of the MCEA Master Plan process, which ends at the completion of Phase 1 and 2 of the Environmental Assessment process, providing a basis for future investigations for Schedule B and C MCEA projects.

The study provides a comprehensive and environmentally sound planning process, to identify capital projects and upgrades needed to provide sustainable water and wastewater servicing to accommodate service areas and future growth to the 2051 planning horizon.

Specific projects that are required to achieve the preferred solutions were identified in the study. These projects may require more detailed investigations at the project specific level to fulfill the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment requirements (Schedule B and C projects).

Overview

After many years of low to negative growth, CK is experiencing unexpected growth during the last couple of years which is driving demands for improvements and upgrades to local water and wastewater infrastructure.

CK through its consultant AECOM has initiated a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (MCEA) Master Plan study to develop strategies for water and wastewater servicing to accommodate existing service areas and future growth.

The project consists of the development of a municipal-wide Water and Wastewater Master Plan. The Master Plan Study was completed in accordance with the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act and followed Approach #1 of the Municipal Engineers Association Municipal Class EA that provided project road map for near-term, intermediate and long-term requirements to service future growth needs as directed by the CK Official Plan.

A Master Plan is an important part of the planning process for improved municipal water and wastewater infrastructure and provides the foundation for individual projects to be implemented by the municipality. Based on study findings and input from the public, master plan report identified recommended sets of water and wastewater projects, capital cost estimates and projected implementation schedules.

The entire planning process is documented in a final Water and Wastewater Master Plan study that includes a suite of municipal infrastructure projects and their MCEA Schedule, to be implemented over the planning horizon in support of the Official Plan.
