Niagara Region has initiated a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment for replacement of the Dain City forcemain in the City of Welland. The study is being undertaken to address the replacement of the existing sanitary forcemain from the Dain City Pumping Station to, approximately, the Ontario Road Pumping Station. In developing recommendations for the proposed alignment, all reasonable alternatives will be considered to minimize impact to adjacent residents and the surrounding environment.
The project will follow Schedule "B" of the Municipal Class EA (October 2000, as amended in 2007, 2011 & 2015), which is approved under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act. As a key element of the Environmental Assessment planning process, input will be sought from the public, stakeholders and technical agencies throughout the study. At this time, it is anticipated that a minimum of one Public Information Centre will be held to share project details and progress with the public. Information regarding the Public Information Centre will be advertised to the public, and upon completion, a Project File will be placed on the public record for 30 days for public review and comment.
