In August 2022, Haldimand County initiated an Addendum to Extend the Nanticoke Water Treatment Environmental Study Report.
Previously in 2006, Haldimand County completed a Schedule ‘C’ Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (MCEA) Study for the expansion of the Nanticoke Water Treatment Plant. The study was undertaken to identify solutions to address long-term water treatment needs.
The 2006 Environmental Study Report is now beyond the 10-year validity as set out in the Environmental Assessment Act. Due to the lapse in time since filing of the 2006 Environmental Study Report (ESR), Haldimand County has completed an Addendum to extend the ESR. The purpose of this Addendum to Extend the Environmental Study Report is to re-evaluate the findings of the 2006 Municipal Class Environmental Assessment under the current regulatory, social, and environmental landscapes to ensure that the findings are still valid.
The Addendum was completed in accordance with the MCEA process, which is approved under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act
Stakeholders should note that a separate but related Notice of Study Commencement was issued by Norfolk County for the “Simcoe-Townsend Water Supply System Municipal Class EA”. The Simcoe-Townsend study being completed by Norfolk will implement an approximately 20 km length transmission water main that connects Simcoe to the Townsend Water Supply System, to secure water supply from the Nanticoke Water Treatment Plant. Interested parties are referred to Norfolk’s project webpage for a detailed description of that work. If comments pertain to both studies, please reach out to both study teams.
