Elmvale Lift Station

The Township of Springwater has retained Ainley & Associates Limited to conduct a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) to expand an existing Wastewater Lift Station located on lands known municipally as 99 Queen Street West in Elmvale.

The Municipality recently completed an assessment of the existing facility and confirmed that it is currently operating at 94% of its maximum capacity. It was determined that an expansion to the facility is necessary to accommodate existing operational demands and future growth in the area.

Notice of Study Completion
A Project File Report has been prepared for this project to document the Schedule ‘B’ Class EA process and is available for a 30-day public review period beginning Thursday February 23, 2017.
