2nd Public Meeting-Green St. Pump Station

By City Staff

NOTICE OF 2nd PUBLIC MEETING

GREEN STREET PUMP STATION – BRIGHTS GROVE, CITY OF SARNIA

NEW SANITARY PUMP STATION AND FORCEMAIN

MUNICIPAL CLASS ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT STUDY - SCHEDULE ‘B’

 

In June 2016 the City of Sarnia initiated a Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) to upgrade or replace the existing ageing Green Street Sanitary Pump Station (GSSPS) located in Bright’s Grove. It is proposed to provide a new sanitary pump station and sanitary forcemain to intercept a significant proportion of the upstream catchment area of the existing GSSPS in order to increase service capacity and ensure continued reliable service.

Alternative options were considered for the replacement pump station and a preferred option for the replacement pump station and an associated standby generator facility located on City owned land adjacent to the Howard Watson trail at the south west corner of the intersection of Lakeshore Road and Waterworks Road in Bright’s Grove was presented at a Public Meeting held on January 25th 2017

Following consultation with adjacent landowners an alternative location for the proposed new Waterworks Pumping Station has been identified on City owned land adjacent to the Howard Watson trail at the south-east corner of the intersection of Lakeshore Road and Waterworks Road. A new interceptor sewer will be constructed south along Waterworks Road from John Street to the proposed site and a new sanitary forcemain will be constructed along the alignment of the Howard Watson trail east from the new pumping station site to the existing Bright’s Grove sewage treatment plant.

Designs for this new preferred option for the replacement pump station site complete with gravity trunk sewer and sanitary forcemain have now been developed through the Municipal Class EA study process.

The City of Sarnia wishes to seek comments from the Public on this preferred site and will therefore be holding a 2nd Public Information Session on Tuesday 23rd January 2018 between the hours of 6:30pm to 8:00 pm in the gymnasium of St. Michael’s School, 1930 Wildwood Road, Bright's Grove.

Neighbouring residents, community members, members of the First Nations community and other interested parties are invited to attend this Public Information Session to review and discuss issues related to the EA Study carried out for the new pumping station and associated works.

If you are unable to attend in person, or if you have any questions regarding the above study, please contact one of the people listed below.
