Outdoor water use ban for Caledonia/Cayuga, Level 2 restrictions in effect for all other communities

Caledonia & Cayuga – Outdoor Water Use Ban until July 13

The City of Hamilton announced a mandatory ban on all non-essential outdoor water use across all parts of Hamilton until July 13. As Caledonia and Cayuga’s water supply comes from Hamilton’s drinking water system, residents of these communities are being asked to comply with the complete ban.

Residents of Cayuga, Caledonia and surrounding areas on the Hamilton water system can still hand-water their flowers and vegetable gardens, or water newly installed sod as needed.

The mandatory restrictions in effect for are resulting from construction at Hamilton’s Woodward Water Treatment Plant, which is temporarily limiting the plant’s capacity for treating water. This construction project was scheduled to be complete before the hot weather brought increased demand on the water supply. However, delays to the project require this action be taken to ensure the water supply in Hamilton and surrounding areas is not interrupted.

The mandatory ban is in place to prevent low or no water pressure, or not enough water for fighting fires.

All Other Communities – Outdoor Water Use Restrictions – Level 2

Haldimand County municipal water customers are reminded that there are outdoor water use restrictions under By-Law No. 1420/14. These restrictions are implemented to conserve water during seasonal high water demand periods. Restrictions apply to residents connected to Haldimand County’s municipal drinking water system.

Currently, outdoor water use restrictions are at Level 2. Outdoor water use is to follow the following schedule:

  • Premises with an odd number address on odd numbered days
  • Premises with an even number address on even numbered days

These restrictions include activities such as lawn watering, watering trees, shrubs, flowers, gardens, residential vehicle washing, filling residential swimming and wading pools & other related activities.

Your cooperation will help ensure a safe and reliable water supply for all customers.

Notice of Study Commencement: New Caledonia Arterial Road and Highway 6 Interchange

Haldimand County has initiated an Environmental Assessment (EA) Study to develop a transportation plan for: a new arterial road between Argyle Street and McKenzie Road; and a new interchange on Highway 6 (Caledonia Bypass) at a location to be determined between Argyle Street and Sixth Line. The Study will evaluate alternative roadway alignments, intersection treatments and interchange locations/configurations and recommend a preferred plan to address local traffic needs within the Study Area. For this undertaking, the County is the Proponent responsible for the planning, design and implementation of future improvements as defined by the Environmental Assessment Act.

WHY IS THIS STUDY BEING DONE?

Road network improvements are required within the southern urban boundary of Caledonia to accommodate planned/proposed development south of the Grand River. Access between the areas north and south of the Grand River is constrained by the two river crossings (Argyle Street and Highway 6), and the lack of east-west arterial roads. A transportation management plan is required to identify improvements or new facilities (i.e. new corridor, interchange) that can safely and reliably serve all modes of travel including vehicular traffic, goods movement, cyclists and pedestrians.

STUDY PROCESS

This Study will be conducted as a Harmonized Municipal Schedule C Class Environmental Assessment and Group B Provincial Class Environmental Assessment meeting the requirements of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment and Class Environmental Assessment for Provincial Transportation Facilities respectively. The Study will complete all phases of the Class EA Processes by establishing the need and justification for the project, evaluating alternatives and selecting a preferred plan with consideration of effects on the natural, social and cultural environments.

PUBLIC CONSULTATION

A draft Study Design Report has been created. The draft Study Design Report describes the study background, approach and consultation programs.

View the Study Design Report

There is opportunity at any time during the Class EA process for interested persons to provide comments. Early identification of individual and group concerns greatly aids in addressing these concerns.  All information will be collected in accordance with the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (2009). With the exception of personal information, all comments will become part of the public record. Persons will be advised of future communication opportunities by newspaper public notices, notices on the project website and Canada Post/email mailing lists.
