Cataraqui Bay Waste Water Treatment Plant
Class Environmental Assessment for Cataraqui Bay WWTP Complete. For the Notice of Completion click Here.
Utilities Kingston has initiated a Class Environmental Assessment (EA) to upgrade the facility and expand the treatment capacity at the Cataraqui Bay Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) in order to ensure continued reliable service.
The purpose of this EA study is to identify the preferred strategy for meeting future wastewater treatment needs identified through the Sewer Master Plan currently underway. The Cataraqui Bay WWTP, located at 409 Front Road, provides treatment of wastewater generated in Kingston’s west end and currently has a rated capacity of 38 800 m3/d.
This EA study will examine alternative strategies for an increase in the functional capacity of the WWTP in order to accommodate anticipated future flow requirements.
The study is being conducted in accordance with the requirements of a Schedule C project under the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (October 2000, as amended in 2007). The Class EA process involves identification of effluent and capacity requirements, assessment of alternative optimization and expansion strategies, development of a recommended conceptual design, and consultation with agencies and the public.
The alternative strategies will be evaluated to ensure the preferred solution minimizes impacts on the natural and social/cultural environment while optimizing capital and operating investments.
Public and agency consultation is a key element of the Class EA process, and input will be sought throughout the study.
A mailing list for notification of project status and opportunities for public input is now being compiled. If you wish to receive notifications, or if you have any questions regarding the study, please contact one of the people listed below.
