Class Environmental Assessment

Ingleside Wastewater Treatment Plant

Population growth and an aging infrastructure in the Village of Ingleside has placed the Ingleside’s Wastewater Treatment Plant under stress.  Therefore, the Township of South Stormont has reviewed alternative solutions to ensure the wastewater treatment plant will meet the demands of the existing population as well as the potential growth in a 20-year horizon.

This project is being planned as a Schedule C project under the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment. The Environmental Study Report has been completed and by this Notice is being placed in the public record for review and comment.  Subject to comments received as a result of this Notice and the receipt of necessary funding and approvals, the Township intends to proceed with the construction of this project in the near future.  The estimated total project cost is $27 million.
