City Planning To Expand And Upgrade Wastewater Collection System For Lindsay

KAWARTHA LAKES-The City of Kawartha Lakes is initiating a planning process to expand the wastewater collection system for the community of Lindsay.

The community of Lindsay is rapidly expanding with new developments and requires upgrades to the wastewater collection system to support the increased needs of the residents in the community, according to the City. The project is being carried out with the requirements for a Schedule ‘B’ project under the terms of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) process. A keymap shows the location of the proposed construction of a new Sewage Pumping Station as part of the development of the Southeast Development Area. The Class EA process includes:

  • Consultation with the public, review agencies, and other stakeholders
  • Field investigations
  • Evaluation of viable alternative solutions
  • Assessment of the impacts of the alternative solutions and identification of measures to mitigate any adverse environmental, social, cultural, and economic impacts
  • Selection of a preferred solution

Public input into the planning and design of this project is a key component of any Class EA process and is encouraged.  The City will be sharing information with the Public and interested Stakeholders through the City’s website.  As part of the Class EA process for reviewing the upgrades to the wastewater collection system, a Public Information Centre (PIC) will be conducted by the City. Notice of this PIC will be provided at least two weeks in advance.
