East Water Service Area Treated Water Storage
Utilities Kingston has initiated a Class Environmental Assessment (EA) to select a suitable site for the construction of a treated water storage reservoir and pumping station in order to ensure continued reliable service.
The purpose of this EA study is to identify the preferred strategy for meeting future needs of the water distribution system, as recommended in the 2007 Master Plan for Water Supply for the City of Kingston Urban Area.
The future reservoir and pumping station is to be located on the east side of the Cataraqui River, North of CFB Kingston and south of Highway 401. The exact site will be selected as part of the EA study.. This EA study will also consider the characteristics and requirements for the reservoir and associated pumping station.
The study is being conducted in accordance with the requirements of a Schedule B project under the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (October 2000, as amended in 2007). The Class EA process involves identification of flow, storage, and pressure requirements, assessment of alternatives for implementation, 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.
