Status: Completed - October 2011

Consultant: AECOM

Study Purpose

To develop a comprehensive strategy for providing water and wastewater service to existing and approved growth areas in Halton Region. The strategy will accommodate the 2031 population / employment and intensification targets set out in the Places to Grow Growth Plan (2005) External link.

Study Scope

The study will:
  • Identify Region-wide water & wastewater servicing needs to the year 2031 with consideration for a longer term servicing strategy. 
  • Evaluate servicing alternatives to 2031 and develop a preferred Region-wide water and wastewater master servicing strategy.
  • Follow Municipal Class Environmental Assessment planning principles including public consultation and systematic evaluation of alternatives.
  • Develop a capital implementation program for the preferred servicing strategy for input into the Development Charge Bylaw and Allocation process.

The study area for this Master Plan includes Oakville, Burlington, Milton and Halton Hills (including Georgetown, Acton and the Highway 401 Corridor).

Additional Information

Master Plan Process

The study is being conducted in accordance with the requirements for Master Plans under Section 4, Approach #2 of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Municipal Engineers Association 2007), which is an approved process under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act.

The Master Plan will carryout Phases 1 and 2 of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) process for all projects, thereby fulfilling the requirements for Schedule A, A+ and B projects.

It will also identify whether additional study through Phases 3 & 4 of the Class EA Study process is required (Schedule C projects).

Background

In accordance with the Places to Grow Act (2005), the residential and employee population in Halton Region is expected to grow by 300,000 and 170,000 respectively by 2031.

In order to provide growth in Halton Region to 2031, the Sustainable Halton Master Plan will integrate planning for long term growth with the development of master servicing plans for water/wastewater and transportation. 

The Sustainable Halton Water & Wastewater Servicing Master Plan will consolidate the findings and recommendations from prior Master Plans and Class EA Studies for south and north Halton, including:

In addition, this Master Plan is being coordinated with the preparation of:
